Inside PET: Preliminary English Test

  • PET reading paper: Part 4: Multiple choice

    Author: Lucrecia Luque Mortimer Type: Teaching notes Staff Room

    Candidates have to read a text which is not purely factual; it includes some attitude and opinion by the author. The text's purpose is to test the candidate's ability in understanding the detail of a text. They will be expected to understand the general meaning of the text (the 'gist' or 'global meaning'), and the purpose of the writer in writing the text. Five marks are available, one for each correct answer.
