GETS Higher is designed to measure the English proficiency of candidates in all four language skills at the seven levels of the GETS Scale of English. Refer to the GETS Scale of English for a description of the language abilities at each of these seven levels.
While there is no course to complete before the test, test-takers could familiarise themselves with the test-format, task types and use an appropriate intermediate and upper intermediate language course to prepare for the desired level.
For this purpose, the test development team has put together a document for each level of the test, which can be used by students and test preparation centres when preparing for the GETS Higher test. Outline document can be downloaded:
Candidates may also get in touch with an authorised centre, who may also be offering test preparation facilities.
