What is it and what is it used for?

Aptis General is a multi-level exam (a single exam for all levels, from A1 to C) created by the British Council. This exam allows you to demonstrate your proficiency in the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Additionally, it includes a grammar and vocabulary section that reinforces the accuracy of your accreditation level.

In addition to the Aptis General exam, there are other exam modalities that are similar but focus on more specific purposes. For example, Aptis for Teachers, which is the same as General but with more specific vocabulary, or Aptis Advanced, designed for those who need to certify a level between C1 and C2 (it is also possible to obtain a B2 level).

The Aptis exam is conducted at an Aptis test center and is carried out in a computer-based format, which speeds up the evaluation process. Results are typically available in just 48 hours, and the printed certificate is delivered in approximately one week. Therefore, Aptis is perfect for those who need to certify their English level quickly and effectively.

It is important to highlight that the Aptis exam is recognized by the British Council, which gives it prestige and is acknowledged in Spain by various universities, such as UCLM, the University of Valencia, the Autonomous University of Madrid, and the Complutense University, among others. Additionally, it is recognized by many institutions in the autonomous communities, including regional governments and education departments.

However, it is always recommended to verify the updated list of recognition of the Aptis certificate to ensure its validity in the institutions you are interested in.
