This means that they are available as either Junior English Test (JET version), which have been specifically contextualized for young learners from the ages of 6 to 16, or as Senior English Test (SET version) which have been specifically contextualized for adult learners. This diversion, though, is not mandatory, meaning that an adult learner can choose to sit for the JET version of an exam.
