C1 Business Higher results are reported on the Cambridge English Scale.
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.
When will I get my C1 Business Higher Statement of Results?
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have provided greater flexibility to our exam centres in delivering exam sessions. This increased flexibility, along with the continued impact from COVID-19, means that currently results are released later than our standard results issue dates. Please note, this also impacts on when certificates are printed and despatched.
The Confirmation of Entry document you receive from your centre will state when your results will be released.
If you need any further information, please contact your exam centre.
