There are three kinds of tests which are graded 1 to 3. Can these tests be named: preliminary test (for 3-5 years old kids); intermediate test (for 6-9 years old kids) and advanced test (for 9-12 years old kids)? If can't, what should the tests be named?

Thanks!:)

    Basic Test (ages 3–5).

    Intermediate and Advanced are fine, with that "age" format above. No need to say they're kids since it's obvious from their ages, and save yourself and your reader the hyphenating/en dashing of "
    3–5-year-old."

    As for the first level, I notice in Google Books (21 century) that 'preliminary' is a much less common collocate to 'intermediate' and 'advanced' than 'basic', 'beginner' and 'elementary' are. (The numbers of hits suggest a difference of approximately 1:100 in each case.)
