When I was studying for my CELPIP exam I got material from them. Unfortunately, I can not put the PDF to the public because it has a watermark with my personal email. But I can put you here what it says.

CELPIP's twelfth error as they state:

A common CELPIP error is using the wrong form for the passive voice. It is important to understand when and how to use the passive voice correctly. Usually, we choose the passive when the receiver of the action is more important than who did it. The passive is useful for describing processes (how something is done).

English has two voices: active and passive. In the active voice, the subject does the action. (Alex damaged the computer.) In the passive voice, the subject receives or experiences the action. (The computer was damaged.) Sometimes an optional “by” phrase tells us who or what does the action. (The computer was damaged by Alex.) The passive is a voice, not a tense, and it can be combined with modals, conditionals, negatives, and most common verb tenses.

CELPIP's thirteenth error as they state:

A common CELPIP error involves the present perfect verb tense. It is often confused with the present simple, the past simple, and the present perfect progressive.

We often hear the present perfect in news broadcasts: A tornado has struck southern Ontario, causing extensive damage. Notice how we’re focusing on the present result of a past event. We also use the present perfect to describe states leading up to the present, past events that occurred at indefinite times, and repeated actions leading up to the present.

CELPIP's fourteenth error as they state:

A common CELPIP error involves mishandling the present perfect progressive verb tense. We use this tense for continuous or repeated actions that started in the past and have gone on up to the present time. Such actions may be finished or unfinished.
