Past Papers

 

Use the tests from previous Hippo competition editions to prepare. Bear in mind that in Hippo 2019, students will take reading and listening tests in the preliminary round and reading and writing tests in the semi-final round. In the semi-final round, tests are one CEFR level higher than in the preliminary round.
