The Michigan English Test (MET) is changing! In response to feedback from our stakeholders, we have made a few updates to the MET to make it even better.

From January 2019, the MET will include a greater proportion of items set in the academic domain, including a new extended reading task, making the test more suitable for use in higher education. At the same time, the total number of test items has been reduced, making it quicker and easier to assess students’ English language skills.

Apart from the above, the content of the test remains unchanged, retaining the same high quality materials and the same level of difficulty. The test continues to cover levels A2-C1, with the most items targeted at the A2 to B2 levels where most test takers are at. With that in mind, the test reports results from A2 to C1 as before, but will now also report “Below A2” for those who do not meet the A2 threshold.
