Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 4
By popular demand, here’s another free Aptis ESOL Vocabulary test for Aptis General. As usual, there are 25 questions divided into four mini-tests, in order to train you for the questions you have to answer in this component.
As always, each section starts with a clear description and an example of each question-type, which are: Word Pairs, Word Definitions, Word Usage and Word Combinations.
As you know, the vocabulary component forms part of the Aptis Core Test, in which you have to do 50 questions in 25 minutes. There are 25 questions on each area, and you can take up to 30 seconds per question. If you take too long doing the tests, they’ll automatically finish and you’ll have to start again. This is to help you get used to exam conditions. Read all of the options carefully before choosing your answer, as some of them may be quite similar. Don’t spend too long on any one the question, as you can always come back to it later, both in our practice tests and in the official test.
Remember, if you need a more detailed description you can go to this post: Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 1.
Aptis Vocabulary Test 4
Part 1: Word Pairs
In this part of the test they give you a target word in the following format: ‘big = ‘. Then you have to select (from a drop-down list) the option that has the most similar meaning to that word; in this case, ‘large’.
Part 2: Word Definitions
In this part of the test they give you a definition and you have to select a word (from the drop-down list) to match to the definition. For example, ‘to cover with paper or material is to’ … ‘wrap’.
Part 3: Word Usage
In this part of the test you have to select a word (again from a drop-down list) to complete each sentence correctly. For example, ‘The holiday company offers [ tourism / monument / sightseeing ] tours every day’. The correct answer here is ‘sightseeing‘.
Part 4: Word Combinations
Finally, in this part of the test you have to combine words that are often used together; this is called collocation. For example, we say ‘do your homework’ (not ‘make your homework’), ‘really amazing’ (not ‘very amazing’), ‘strong beer’ ( not ‘heavy beer’).
