Cambridge KET Exam Preparation

To make your child as comfortable as possible before taking Cambridge KET exam, we suggest the following exam preparation: –

  • Ensure your child to stay up to date, show them the relevant exam papers. When children are prepared, they will feel more confident and achieve better results. 
  • Encourage your child to attend more English lessons at our learning centre and practice more at home. A child will feel more confident when they can find answers to their questions about the exam when a teacher is present.  
In the Cambridge KET Listening exam:
  • The recordings are played twice. If your child misses something the first time they listen, there will be another opportunity to hear the answers.
  • Practise listening to English as much as possible.
  • Revise the letters of the alphabet and numbers.
  • Make sure you understand how to complete the answer sheet.
  • Check your answers at the second listening.
In the Cambridge KET Reading & Writing exam:
  • Ensure your child writes clearly.
  • Check your answers and make sure you have written them in the correct place on the answer sheet.
  • Write all your answers on the answer sheet.
  • Take your time as there is plenty of time to answer all of the questions.
  • Use a pencil, not a pen, on the answer sheet.
In the Cambridge KET Speaking Exam:
  • Our examiners at our learning centre are very friendly. They are very experience and encouraging. Your child should feel relax and enjoy the speaking part of the exam. Suggest to your child to use words they are familiar to communicate with, for example, ‘Yes please’, ‘Thank you’, Pardon?’ 
  • If you child does not understand something, they can ask our friendly examiner to repeat what they said. They can use words such as, ‘Can you please repeat?’. 
  • Listen carefully to the examiner’s instructions and questions during the test.
  • Always try to answer the questions, even if you are worried about making mistakes. The examiners can’t mark you if you don’t say anything.
