Pearson English International Certificate Young Learners 

The International Certificate Young Learners is a fun English language assessment for students aged six to 13, delivered by Edexcel, the UK’s largest examining body.


The International Certificate Young Learners is an assessment solution to suit students from pre-A1 to A2 level on the Common European Framework of Reference, at four different levels of English language proficiency.


It tests a young learner’s ability to use structures and functions in realistic contexts and, later on in the series, tests their ability to use language to carry out specific communicative tasks, with an emphasis on real-life scenarios rather than on knowledge of specific language items and vocabulary.  It  aims to make the first experience of learning English memorable and motivating. Children are tested on their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills to show how well they can use English in realistic contexts.

The International Certificate Young Learners is ideal for kindergarten and primary school children to obtain world-recognized qualifications, leading to better opportunities to enter their favorite schools.

The International Certificate Young Learners has four levels of test: Fisrtwords, Springboard, Quichmarch, Breakthrough.



About our Scores

Using an online marking system (e-Pen) and a web-based test center service system, Pearson provides fast and helpful feedback on individual performance of students in the tests.

Detailed feedback is provided in the form of a candidate performance report, which includes a breakdown of the scores for listening, speaking, reading and writing. These are sent to the test centres who distribute them accordingly.

The grades awarded for the test are Distinction, Merit or Pass. If test takers do not achieve a Pass grade, they receive a candidate performance report, but not a certificate.
