Practical information for Anglia Schools
Hundreds and hundreds of schools in primary, secondary and higher education are so called Anglia Schools. At these Anglia schools extra attention is given to the English language using the Anglia Step by Step approach. The Anglia Step by Step approach consists of 14 different levels. These are 4 Business English levels and 10 general English levels. Regular Anglia examinations test three skills: Reading, Writing and Listening. Of course, there are also Anglia Speaking Tests available.
There are 5 set dates per year on which Anglia examinations can be taken. A student usually takes one examination per year. The Anglia step-by-step approach can very easily be used for students to create a language portfolio. A school can decide itself at which moment the examination is organized. It is allowed to organize the Anglia examinations at your own school. Business Anglia Examinations are made on the computer, the general examinations are paper-based.
The Anglia examination consists of a reading, writing and listening part. This is called the R/W/L examination. You take the three skills at the same time and at the same level. From level Preliminary you can see a percentage score per skill on your certificate.
If you have passed all your general English examinations or if you are interested in Business English for example because of your future education plans? Then you can take part in the Anglia Business exams. In these exams the subjects are focussed on Business communication.

Anglia Handbook for Teachers
In the Anglia Handbook for Teachers you can find detailed descriptions of elements of English that students should concentrate on to be well prepared. In other words: what does it mean to work on A1 level or B2 level? It is a very valuable source that gives you a structural overview of the exam.
In addition to the R(eading), W(riting) and L(istening) sections in the exams there are also Vocabulary lists and Grammar lists per level, if applicable. Furthermore the Handbook for Teachers gives information about the Marking Criteria and the Speaking Tests. Click on the cover of the Handbook for Teachers to download the complete guide.
All Anglia Examinations and Anglia Speaking Test recordings will be sent to the Anglia HQ in Chichester, England to be marked. The Anglia Coordinator of the school will receive a survey of the results per e-mail on an agreed date, asking him or her to pass on this information to the participants as soon as possible.
There are four possible outcomes: REFER, PASS, MERIT and DISTINCTION. In case of Refer the exam has been done insufficiently and no certificate will be issued. The other scores mean respectively sufficient, good and excellent.
Some weeks after the results the certificates will be sent to the schools.
