Cambridge exams

Cambridge University has a range of English language tests at different levels and for different purposes. Unlike IELTS, Cambridge exams have unlimited validity.

In 2015, Cambridge will be introducing a new scale of scores:
Scores between 120 and 139 = CEFR A2
Scores between 140 and 159 = CEFR B1
Scores between 160 and 179 = CEFR B2
Scores between 180 and 199 = CEFR C1
Scores between 200 and 230 = CEFR C2

The following Cambridge exams test all four skills (speaking, reading, writing and listening). Click on the links below to go to the Cambridge ESOL website.

Key (KET) - pass level A2
Preliminary (PET) – pass level B1
First (FCE) – pass level B2 (New exam in 2015: More info here)
Advanced (CAE) – pass level C1
Proficiency( CPE) – pass level C2

Each has 3 pass grades: A, B and C. The most popular tests with my students are Cambridge First and Advanced.
