B1 Preliminary is one of the Cambridge English Qualifications. It is the English language exam that shows that students have mastered the basics.

Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) for Schools qualification shows that a student has mastered the basics of English and now has practical language skills for everyday use.

This exam is the logical step in a student’s language learning journey between Cambridge English: Key (KET) for Schools and Cambridge English: First (FCE) for Schools.

Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) for Schools is targeted at the same CEFR level as Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) but with content aimed at school-age learners rather than adults.
