Candidates can appear for the test as many times as they want, but not more than twice in a 30-day window.

Exam Pattern

As the DET is computer-adaptive, it does not follow a clear structure. There are 3 main sections involved.
  • Section-1: Quick Setup (5 minutes) - Here, the candidates are required to check their computer and other equipment (like microphone, speakers, and webcam). After this, they need to ensure that they are in a well-lit and quiet room. They must take a photograph of themselves and of their government-issued ID card in order to start the test.
  • Section-2: The Test (30-45 minutes) - This is the time duration when the candidate is assessed on his/her language proficiency. As the test is computer-adaptive, if the candidates show a higher level of English, their test can end in about 30 minutes; otherwise, this section will take about 45 minutes. The questions are not arranged in any prescribed format/order and simply depend upon what the candidate has chosen as answer to the previous question. There are 12 question types involved in this rigorous testing environment which assess a candidate on his/her Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking skills.
  • Section-3: Video Interview (10 minutes) - This is an unscored section of the test. The replies in this section are sent to the institutes along with the candidate’s proficiency score. This section is divided in two parts.
  • Part-1: Spoken Response (1-3 minutes) - The candidates are given a choice to speak about 1 of the 2 topics. They must make their choice in 20 seconds and then speak about the topic for a minimum of 1 minute and a maximum of 3 minutes.
  • Part-2: Written Response (3-5 minutes) - The candidates are given a choice to write about 1 of the 2 topics. They must make their choice in 20 seconds and then write about the topic for a minimum duration of 3 minutes and a maximum duration of 5 minutes.
