Password English Language Tests

Password English language tests are designed and academically managed by
CRELLA (the Centre for Research in English Language Learning and Assessment), a research group involved in the development and validation of many of the world’s most renowned English language assessments including IELTS and the Cambridge suite.

The tests are formally aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability.

Password Maths Tests

Password Maths tests were developed following demand from institutions already using our English tests. In 2017, we undertook an extensive consultation with our partner universities, colleges and schools and worked with senior maths teachers from a consortium of leading UK independent schools to ensure the tests would enjoy the same academic validity and usability as our English tests.

All Password tests are proven to have extremely high levels of accuracy since their launch in 2008.


Message From Our Founder & CEO

The Password journey started in the UK back in 2003 when, as a senior manager of Brunel University London, I was tasked with trebling the number of international students. One of the tools I needed to achieve this was a secure way of reliably assessing the English language capabilities of students applying to the University.

Having developed our own paper-based English test and realising its drawbacks, I tried to set up a consortium of universities to develop a better and more secure online version of the test. Whilst there was much interest in the idea, turning it into reality proved impossible. As the saying goes, and meaning no offence to universities or cats as I am rather fond of them both, it was like trying to herd cats!


I therefore decided in 2008 to go it alone and with the help of some funding from the University of the Arts London began an amazing  journey which has helped not only UK universities recruit and retain more international students but has given universities, colleges, schools and employers across the world accurate, reliable and secure English language and Maths tests which are used for more purposes than I could ever have dreamt of. From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Password tests are now used in over 120 countries around the world.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our partners for your inspiration and ideas which continue to guide us to develop and improve our test products and services to better suit your needs.
