EDEXCEL – PEARSON EXAMS

 

 

Edexcel – Pearson exams, both Young Learners and General, consist in a written and oral test, as established by  Decreto M.I.U.R. n. 3889 del 7 marzo 2012:

  • The written exam measures listening, and reading comprehension and writing; they are corrected by external examiners in the United Kingdom;

  • The oral exam is conducted by local qualified examiners, and then sent to the United Kingdom to check the correspondence to the standards.
