English Language Level Test (Provide Proof of English for UK over 55 Universities) Check Video
The English Language Level Test (ELLT) as an alternative to students unable to access an IELTS or equivalent test as evidence of their English language level for entry into UK Universities. The ELLT is a four-step assessment taken to ascertain your current English language level and can be completed 100% online. On successful completion of all four steps of the assessment students receive a certification and full report, allowing you to move forward and apply to university courses with proof of English without ever leaving your home.The assessments are led by highly-qualified and experienced staff and processed by the UK language admissions team.
The ELLT is a modularised skill test covering the four key skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking). The first two skills (reading and listening) are automated tests, with high levels of AI proctoring and security. The third skill, writing, is assessed through a unique written task and submitted directly to one of our highly experienced ELLT examiners. The speaking component is booked by the student at a time most suitable for them. This takes place with a live examiner over video call.
What does the Assessment involve?
The Online English Language Level Test (ELLT) is made up of four elements; first students will complete both a reading test and a listening test, followed by a writing task, ending with an oral test which takes place over a video call with one of our highly qualified English teachers:
The first two skills (reading and listening) are automated tests, with high levels of AI proctoring and security. The reading test takes 40 minutes and consists of two texts. The listening test takes 20 minutes and consists of two audio tracks
The third skill, writing, is assessed through a unique written task and submitted directly to the examiner. The writing test consists of one 60 minute opinion based essay style question.
The speaking component is booked by the student at a time most suitable for them. This takes place with a live examiner. The speaking test consists of 3 separate stages which last approximately 15 minutes in total.
The ELLT Portal
The ELLT Portal has been designed to make the test as accessible for students and partners as possible, and allow students to take control of their own journey throughout, ensuring they can take each section at a time most suitable for them.
Students are able to register and pay for the test, which gives them immediate access to the first three stages (reading, listening and writing). Each of these can be taken individually, and once complete students can book their speaking assessment from a timetable of availability.
The portal uses advanced test security to ensure that students’ results are a true reflection of their ability. With a mixture of AI proctoring and security protocols, alongside our team of examiners from our English language schools, we are able to confidently deliver results to students all over the world.
Once the student completes all four stages of the test, the assessing teacher writes a report summary with results from the four tasks and gives a final certificate of level to the student along with the detailed report.
If the assessing teacher has any doubts, then a follow up assessment may be done by a Senior Teacher or Director of Studies. The four-step process adds a level of robustness to the results, and the cross referencing of previous tests along with spot checks ensure a secure test environment and level of trust in the results.
