At all three levels, the materials and tasks are accessible to candidates who have the experience of or are interested in entering a range of business fields, including marketing, production, financial services, and general office work.
The ‘business’ aspect of this examination affects the vocabulary, the type of texts selected and the situations presented in the tasks.
