What is Aptis?

We have over 80 years of experience testing English language around the world. Our experts have developed the Aptis test based on the latest research in English language assessment. 

Aptis can assess your English level in all four language skills – speaking, writing, reading and listening. It also incorporates a grammar and vocabulary test. Which skills you will be tested in depends on the organisation which asks you to take the test (e.g. an employer or training provider).

What do my scores mean?

You will receive results based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). They will indicate your CEFR (A1-C) level for each skill tested. If you take all 4 skills you will receive an overall CEFR level. Along with your CEFR level a scaled score (0-50) showing your aptitude level for each skill level tested.

Enquiry on Results

If you are not happy with your results, you can request your test to be re-marked. You can make an Enquiry on Results request at any point up to eight weeks after the test day. The fee is 250 PLN

How to submit an Enquiry on Results? 

You should submit your Enquiry on Results request via e-mail together with a proof of payment at exams@britishcouncil.pl

You may only ask for a re-marking of the entire test, and not for a single component. Grammar and vocabulary, reading and listening components checks are conducted by the system, to ensure they have been marked accurately. The speaking and writing components are re-marked by senior examiners. Re-marked test results are considered final.

If your overall CEFR level increases after the re-marking, you will be refunded the full enquiry on results fee and we will issue you with a new Aptis certificate.

If your CEFR level remains the same or changes in a single component, but the overall CEFR level does not change, the fee will be retained and you will be informed.

The outcome of the Enquiry on Results is considered final. The results from the remarking process will be available after ten working days.
