As students of a plurilingual school, our 4th ESO & BAC pupils have been given the opportunity to enter for an ISE (=Integrated Skills in English) exam of the Trinity College. The ISE I is the equivalent to B1, the ISE II to the B2  and the ISE III to the C1.


The Trinity ISE exams are a 4 skill integrated test in a two exam module. READING-WRITING and SPEAKING-LISTENING. You can pass each of the modules indipendently but to get an ISE qualification certificate you need to pass both. You can take both modules together or separately.

- You can use a BLACK or BLUE pen and a marker. No pencils, erasers, eraser-pens, Typex can be used.
