Why Cambridge English?
From January 2015, Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) results will be reported on the new Cambridge English Scale (replacing the current candidate profile and standardised scores).
You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and use of English, giving you a clear understanding of your performance. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. You will also be given a grade and Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level.
For more information about the Cambridge English Scale, download our factsheet.
All candidates receive a Statement of Results, and if you are successful in the exam you will also receive a certificate.
