The practice test is a great way to familiarize yourself with the Duolingo English Test and get an estimate of your current proficiency level. Once you create an account, you can take the practice test as many times as you like at no cost.
The practice test only takes about 30 minutes, but contains the same question types as the certified test, and offers the same adaptive experience. This means the difficulty changes depending on how you perform from question to question. At the end you'll receive an estimated score range, which can help you decide whether you're ready to take the certified test.
We're always working to make the practice test as helpful as possible. We've aligned its scoring algorithm more closely with the certified test, which allows us to provide a narrower and more accurate estimated score range. We've also greatly increased the number of questions available for the practice test. This means you can take it more times before seeing any repeated questions!
Overall, the practice test is one of the most useful ways to prepare for the Duolingo English Test. We also recommend checking our test readiness page for additional testing tips and resources!
