Cambridge English Qualifications

“A certificate from Cambridge English Language Assessment tells people a great deal about you and what you can do. It is recognised as proof of your language abilities by more than 13,500 employers, universities and government bodies around the world.”

The University of Cambridge English Language Assessment examinations website:

The Cambridge English Language Assessment examinations – FCE, CAE & CPE – are certificated qualifications which have no expiry date. Other language tests scores have a shelf life of only 24 months and the test result offers no assurance that the standard achieved in the test is sustainable. This in itself demonstrates the confidence Cambridge have in the validity and value of their qualifications. To achieve a pass in any of these advanced examinations, learners must have a level of proficiency in English which is both sound and progressively closer to the level of an educated native speaker.
