The Reading Sections include parts one through five and the Writing Sections include parts six through nine. The first part tests the student’s ability to understand different kinds of notices, signs, or other short texts that may be found in cafés, schools, roads, or at other popular locations by matching the correct text with the correct sign. The second part has four fill in the blank questions in which the test taker is supposed to choose the best word to complete a given sentence. The third part evaluates the pupil’s understanding and ability to use English in everyday situations through multiple choice questions where they are to choose the correct grammatical response to a given question. The fourth part requires the student to read a long text and answer seven questions based off of the text, and in the fifth part, there is a long text that has blanks that need to be filled with the appropriate and provided verb, adjective, adverb, conjunction, preposition, noun, or pronoun.
The sixth part tests the student’s vocabulary by requiring them to complete a word that is described by a sentence. The seventh part evaluates their grammar as well as vocabulary.

In the ninth part, students are required to compose a short message of twenty-five to thirty-five words on a given topic.
The Listening Section has a time limit of thirty minutes and consists of five parts. The first part of this section requires the student to listen to five separate short dialogues.
