Your CEFR level (from A1 to C1) or your IELTS level (from below Band 4 to above Band 6) will determine whether you should start from Level 0, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 or Level 4 (Test Ready).
If you are unsure of your CEFR or your IELTS level, you can either complete the Placement Test or start at any level that you think you are at. The best way to determine whether your chosen level is right for you is to do a lesson.
If you have achieved 100% in the lesson, it means that the level is too easy for you. You should go up a level. If you achieve less than 25% of the lesson, it means that the level is too difficult for you. You should go down at least a level.
For example, a student who has started with Level 2 scores 28.5 and 25.67 in two activities of Lesson 1. He/she can choose to continue doing more lessons to see whether his/her score will improve. If not, the student may benefit from going down one level, i.e. completing Level 1 before coming back to Level 2.
Please note that the unit tests are not for level checking at the beginning. The tests are designed to assess your performance after the whole lessons are complete for the particular units (e.g. Education, Sport, Socialising etc).
