Notes on additional feedback on pretest performance In addition to scores, Cambridge English Language Assessment provides performance indicators for candidates taking part in pretesting for certain exams. This feedback is designed to provide useful guidance to candidates, subject to the following considerations: 1) Pretests are designed to fine-tune materials to ensure that they are accurate, reliable and fair. As such, some materials may be subject to further modification prior to use in live examinations. 2) Pretests do not necessarily have exactly the same format as live examinations. 3) For a variety of reasons, there is no guarantee that a candidate will perform equally well on two different occasions. 4) A candidates language abilities may change over time. The value of this feedback is therefore greater the shorter the time between the pretest and live examination. There are three performance indicators: On track subject to the considerations above, the candidate is likely to be at the level required in order to be able to perform adequately on this paper in the live examination" Borderline subject to the considerations above, the candidate is likely either to be at the level required in order to be able to perform adequately on this paper in the live examination, or to be able to reach that level through further study/practice before the date of the examination" Needs improvement subject to the considerations above, the candidate is unlikely to be at the level required in order to be able to perform adequately on this paper in the live examination, and further study/practice is definitely required before they reach that level
