Advance Your Career or Study Abroad
If you have been advised to study for any of the following examinations your aim is to gain a recognised qualification in English to academic or high business level. To do this you must already have a high level of English. If this is not the case you will need to study up to advanced level English or upper-intermediate at the very least.
PLC School and Training Centre can interview you and give you a pre-course test if you have never taken a test or exam at this level before. We will not take on any student who is not at the required level for examination, but we can help you to study general English with a language course until you are at the required level.
Our exam level English courses are more about developing test technique and practice tests together with a focus on any weak areas you may have. Your level of English must already be at a standard we can apply to training and testing for examinations.
