Listening: 3 sections / 20 to 30 questions (time varies depending on test)

Reading: 3 to 5 texts / 30 questions (time varies depending on test)

Writing: 250-word essay (40 minutes)

Speaking: 3 parts (approximately 15 minutes)


  • You will receive your test schedule on or before the day of the test.
  • You will receive details of test timings when you start the test.
  • It will take no more than 2 hours and 30 minutes to complete all parts of the test.


UCA English language tutors conduct the individual speaking tests via TEAMS, WeChat, Zoom, or other video conferencing software.

Certificates and results are usually issued by UCA within 3 working days.  Test results are usually valid for 12 months only. 
The test costs £60.
