In this section we deal with lower-level language points that aren’t in the Grammar Reference section. This is because they’re A1/A2 language that you should already know by B1 level. But remember that as all the Aptis tests are progressive in level (from A1 onwards), this section will also be useful for higher-level students to revise the basics.
