What is the difference between a full and part ISLPR® test?

Posted by ISLPR Language Services on December 6, 2019 at 6:00 AM

Full ISLPR®Test:

A full ISLPR® test is a two-part test that examines all four macro-skills (i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing). The first part of the test is a one hour interview where your speaking, listening and reading skills will be assessed. The second part of the test is a one hour writing test.

Part ISLPR® Test:

A part ISLPR® test only examines the skills you request to be tested. A part test is useful for candidates who do not get the rating they require in one, two or three skills. Instead of redoing the whole test, we can offer a part test.

Can anyone do a part test?


Good question! Unfortunately, we do not make the rules. ISLPR® Language Services is only responsible for administering the ISLPR® test. Before you book a part test, you must contact the end-user to confirm whether they will accept the part test results. Some end-users will only accept one certificate and therefore, you would have to do a full test again.

ISLPR® Language Services will never combine results from tests completed on different occasions.

What is the difference in price between a part test and a full test?

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
