REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

Each school has to select the students who will participate in the competition before they participate in the competition. The English department of schools selects 6 students to create a team to represent their school in each category. The basic rule of the competition is that the students who have participated in the competition have not been in an English-speaking country for more than six months.

The examination includes three different categories: preparatory classes (first category), 7th and 8th grades (second category) and 10th and 11th grades (third category). Schools with students from the categories mentioned above select 6 students to form a team for each category. If the school has two different types of preparatory classes, they form a different team for each preparation group. Degrees will be announced on our website in two weeks following the competition.

EXAM

The first category for preparatory classes: This exam will be at A2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The curricula of our schools are suitable for this level. The exam questions will be similar to the CAT exam.

The second category for 7th and 8th grades: This exam will be at level B1 according to the Common European Framework. The curricula of our schools for 7th and 8th grades are suitable for this level. The exam questions will be similar to the PET exam.
