Sample tests give a taste and feel of the item types and vocational contexts in which learners may find questions set. They are not marked, and should only be used to familiarise candidates with the platform and item templates, rather than to practice and prepare for the test. The structure of a sample test does not follow the structure of the real test, and it may be made up of a small number of questions from multiple units. Mark schemes will not be provided.

Specimen tests are full tests that exemplify the structure of the real test, and can be used by candidates to prepare for the real test. Mark schemes will be provided. They would normally exemplify the standard by which the live papers are written, too. Specimen tests are not available in all subject areas.

Practice papers (coming soon for some qualifications) are full papers that candidates can use to help prepare, or practice. They do not define a standard for other tests.
