WPLN Familiarisation Tests

The WPLN Familiarisation Tests have been created to help you experience and prepare for the actual WPLN Assessments. They cover all four English skills – Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening as well as the core Grammar and Vocabulary, and Numeracy components. As examples of tests, they will show you what types of questions to expect and how much time you should spend on each task. 

You will not get results after completing these tests, but they will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the different parts and the format of the new assessments, including task types and response formats.
