Exams and tests
Cambridge English Qualifications are in-depth exams that make learning English enjoyable, effective and rewarding.
Our qualifications for schools are based on research into effective teaching and learning. They provide a strong foundation and learning framework to help children and teenagers gain confidence and improve their English language skills, step by step.
Our in-depth exams help to structure the language-learning curriculum, and give clear objectives for the learner. The Cambridge English Scale gives greater detail of a learner’s performance and ability at each level of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) across our suite of exams. With this information teachers can offer guidance on how to progress and learners can prepare for our exams with confidence.
Our exams are based on real-life situations, helping learners to develop the same skills they need to communicate and thrive outside the classroom. Cambridge English Qualifications are accepted and trusted by thousands of organisations worldwide. They are a mark of excellence and open doors to exciting higher education and employment opportunities.
We provide a range of teaching support, exam preparation materials and free resources to help schools and teachers support their students’ English language learning.
Cambridge English Qualifications are designed so that each exam builds on the skills learners develop at the previous level. Below you can see how our exams work together to create an effective learning journey.
