PQS Proficiency

Stage Grade 7-8
Level B2


The PQS Proficiency (General) test is suitable for those applying to train or study at below degree level, for those who are going to English speaking countries for secondary education, work experience and/or training programs. The test focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts.

The PQS is a task-based test covering the four language skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking).

There are two types of the PQS test: PQS Academic and PQS Proficiency (General). Listening and Speaking are the same for both tests, but the subject matter of the Reading and Writing components differs depending on which test you take.

The Listening, Reading and Writing components of all PQS tests are completed on the same day, with no breaks in between them. The Speaking component, however, can be completed up to a week before or after the other tests. Your test center will advise.
