What is BULATS?

BULATS stands for Business Language Testing Service. It is an online assessment tool to assist companies to develop their staff to communicate confidently and effectively in business situations. BULATS is popular among businesses in over 30 countries and it is mainly used for recruitment, training, benchmarking and staff development. It, assesses the language skills that are required for employees and trainees who want to develop in the workplace. At the moment, four different types of test are offered: the BULATS Computer Test, the BULATS Standard Test, the BULATS Writing Test and the BULATS Speaking Test.

There is no ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ mark for BULATS tests. Scores are given on a scale of 1 to 100 – it varies according to the organisation language requirements.
All BULATS tests are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) – the international benchmark for describing language ability. This ensures that candidates’ results can be compared with international standards.

The BULATS preparation course specifically focuses on every part of the BULATS exam and provides practice tests, strategies and valuable information to ensure that students are fully prepared for the exam.
