What is Aptis for Teens? 

  • Aptis for Teens is an English assessment tool developed by the British Council, designed specifically for teenagers aged 13-17.
  • Teenagers are tested through topics and scenarios they can relate to, for example: social media, homework, school events and sports, to make the test more familiar. This modern approach to testing allows candidates to fully demonstrate their English knowledge allowing them to focus on their English skills.
  • Aptis for Teens can be integrated into current education systems, which allows students’ English levels to be measured effectively and efficiently over time.
  • Schools, language centres, private and public organisations can decide if they prefer the computer based version, or if a paper based version is what they need. 
  • A fun and modern approach to testing, Aptis for Teens is a 21st century test for 21st century minds.

Who can use it?

  • Lower and upper secondary schools
  • Ministries of Education around the world
  • Language schools
  • Private tutors or teachers
  • Bi-lingual schools

Why choose Aptis for Teens?

  • Aptis for Teens will help you prepare your students. The test results will provide you with a CEFR score for each skill and an overall level if the 4 skills test is what you need.
  • You will be able to streamline learners according to proficiency level and identify skills in need of development.
  • Aptis for Teens will help you evaluate learning programmes and test your students’ progress over extended periods.
  • Aptis for Teens Four Skills is supervised and guaranteed by British Council Albania.
  • Aptis for Teens is flexible: you can choose a date that suits you and your organisation.

Flexibility extends to our reporting service and scores are presented in both individual and group form.

A scaled score (0-50) is given for each skill tested and this can be used to compare individual candidates within their group and also to help measure progress if they are re-taking the test. Along with the scaled score we also give a Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level for each skill taken (A1-C). If you take all 4 skills you will receive an overall (CEFR) level.
