Default Re: PET Marking System

here I am giving you information about marking and grading system of preliminary English test in PDF file attached with it so you can get it easily.. some content is given below :

Preliminary English test
Marking and Grading
The final mark a candidate receives in PET is an aggregate of
the marks obtained in each of the three papers (Reading/
Writing, Listening and Speaking). There is no minimum pass
mark for individual papers.

PET has two passing grades:
Pass with Merit

Two Failing Grades:
Narrow Fail

‘Pass’ ordinarily corresponds to approximately 70% of the
total marks, and ‘Pass with Merit’ to approximately 85%. A
‘Narrow Fail’ result indicates that a candidate was within 5%
of the ‘Pass’ boundary.
Statements of Results contain a graphical display of a
candidate’s performance in each component. These are
shown against a scale of Exceptional – Good – Borderline –
Weak and indicate the candidate’s relative performance in
each paper.

Each item carries one mark. This gives a total of 25 marks,
which represents 25% of total marks for the whole

Part Task Type and Format Task Focus Number of questions
1 Multiple choice (discrete). Short neutral or informal monologues or dialogues. Seven discrete three-option multiple-choice items with visuals, plus one example. Listening to identify key information from short exchanges. 7
2 Multiple choice. Longer monologue or interview (with one main speaker). Six three-option multiple-choice items. Listening to identify specific information and detailed meaning. 6
3 Gap-fill. Longer monologue. Six gaps to fill in. Candidates need to write one or more words in each space. Listening to identify, understand and interpret information. 6
4 True/false. Longer informal dialogue. Candidates need to decide whether six statements are correct or incorrect. Listening for detailed meaning, and to identify the attitudes and opinions of the speakers. 6
