Preliminary, also known as Preliminary English Test (PET), is an intermediate level qualification in English that opens the doors to opportunities for work, study and travel.

Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools follows exactly the same format as Cambridge English: Preliminary, also known as Preliminary English Test (PET), and the level of the question papers is identical. The only difference is that the content and treatment of topics in Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools have been particularly targeted at the interests and experience of school pupils.
