Change Location Exams Place: KET for Schools
General Information
KET for Schools (now called Cambridge English: Key for Schools) is a basic level exam for students who are still at school so the topics are aimed at areas that would be of interest to them.

There are two versions of KET available: KET and KET for Schools. Both follow exactly the same format and the level of the question papers is identical. The only difference is that the content and treatment of topics in KET for Schools have been particularly targeted at the interests and experience of school pupils.
