Discover our improved Results Service
Millions of learners and global Recognising Organisations are using our online Results Services. Registrations continue to boom for both websites – Results Service for Candidates and the Results Verification Service for Recognising Organisations – as they become the most convenient and secure way to share and verify Cambridge English results.
In this blog you can find out everything you need to know about our latest updates and why you may want to sign up if you haven’t already.
Why do we have a Results Service?
Did you know, over 5.5 million of our qualifications and tests are taken every year? Millions of learners are aiming high, and our job is to make it as easy as possible for every learner, no matter where they are in the world, to move on to exciting higher education and employment opportunities.
And so, the Results Service was born. The Service was carefully designed to offer everything needed to make progression easier – it’s free to use anytime; it’s secure and reliable as you would expect from Cambridge; and it’s accessible and immediate. Recognising Organisations can use the Service to quickly and easily verify exam results dating from 2005 onwards for B2 First, C1 Advanced, C2 Proficiency and many other Cambridge qualifications.1
Our service for Recognising Organisations
Cambridge English qualifications and tests are recognised by 25,000 organisations worldwide including over 13,000 higher and further education institutes, more than 11,000 employers, and 750 governments and ministries. The Results Service for has been designed to help Recognising Organisations securely verify candidates results for admissions, recruitment or visa purposes.
Recognising Organisations can use the results of individuals or groups and receive alerts when new results are shared. Let’s take a quick look inside the Service and see how easy it is to use.
After logging in, you can see all the candidates who have shared their results with you. ‘New’ candidates are easy to spot as they are shown in bold.
You can also search for candidates, without the candidate having shared their results through the Service. All you need to do is click on ‘Candidate Search’ and enter the candidate’s date of birth and their Exam Reference Number from their Statement of Results.
Using the Results Service, you can see a detailed breakdown of a candidate’s results that includes their overall CEFR score, their Cambridge English Scale score and scores for the individual skills. For our high stakes exams, e.g. B2 First, C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency, you can also see security information, such as their test day photo, and you have the option of downloading their full Statement of Results.
If you want to save time, you may prefer to download results for multiple candidates at once. All you need to do is click on ‘Downloads’ and you have the option of using our ready-made download template or creating your own.
Notifications are another great feature of the service. This means you can choose to receive emails notifying you when candidates share their results. You can select how frequently you receive emails, or turn off the notifications if you prefer.
Plus, we are adding increased functionality! Soon, it will be almost completely effortless to obtain candidate results. Our ‘API Functionality’ on the Results Service website is being updated to make it easier than ever for organisations to integrate results automatically into their own database. For more details about the service and how you can register, see our Results Verification Service page.
Our new and improved service for candidates
Candidates who would like to share their results with a Recognising Organisation can do so through our Results Service for Candidates website. Candidates simply log in to Results Service for Candidates, select the organisation(s) of their choice and click ‘Send my result’.
In February 2022 we updated the candidate website, and it’s easier than ever for candidates to share results. The website has been redesigned, it’s mobile-friendly and easier to navigate. But importantly, the functionality remains the same. Candidates can still use the website to share their results, as well as to see the status of their results, download a Statement of Results (excluding DELTA), add results to a LinkedIn profile and find out about further qualifications they can take.
Let’s take a quick look inside the Service and see how easy it is for candidates to share their results.
- After logging in, a candidate simply clicks on ‘Send your results to an education institution, employer or immigration authority’.
- Next, they go to the search bar and start typing in the name of the Recognising Organisation.
- Finally, they select the relevant organisation from the list and click ‘Send my result’. The process is complete!
In some cases, candidates may find their chosen organisation is not listed because the Recognising Organisation has not yet registered for the Results Service. In these cases, the candidate can invite the organisation to set up their account by clicking on ‘Send them an invite’.
