Are you wanting to take the CELPIP test, but not sure which one you need? Here’s everything you need to know to make sure you choose the right English exam for your needs!
The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) tests are Canada’s leading English language proficiency tests for immigration and for professional designation.
The two available CELPIP tests are CELPIP – General and CELPIP – General LS.
What Is the Difference?
The CELPIP – General Test tests candidates on the four English skills of reading, listening, writing, and speaking. This test is a completely computerized setting in a CELPIP Test Centre and takes about three hours in total.
CELPIP – General LS Test stands for general Listening and Speaking. It tests candidates only on the skills of listening and speaking. This test is also completed online in one sitting in a CELPIP Test Centre, but it only takes about one hour to complete. This test is only available in Canada.
How Do I Know Which to Take?
Before you begin test preparation or book your CELPIP test, you first need to confirm which test you need to take. For visa and immigration purposes, CELPIP is an approved English language test by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The CELPIP – General Test is used for Permanent Residency applications and Skilled Immigrants (Express Entry).
The CELIP – General LS Test is NOT accepted for Express Entry. However, the CELPIP – General LS Test is approved for Canadian Citizenship applications.
If you are required to take the CELPIP test for your career or college entry, you will need to confirm with that organization test they require you to sit.
