There is no pass or fail and all children receive a certificate which shows how many shields they have received (out of a maximum of five) for each part of the test.
A Pre A1 Starters certificate is a great way to celebrate children’s achievement, build their confidence and reward their own individual ability.
A result of one shield means a child can improve a lot in that skill. Five shields mean that a child did very well in that skill and answered most questions correctly.
The back of the certificate shows how results align to the CEFR. If a child has achieved 4 or 5 shields in each skill, they are ready to start preparing for the next Cambridge English exam – A1 movers.
A new Statement of Results
For exams taken from 1 September 2020, each student will receive a certificate and a Statement of Results.
The Statement of Results includes:
- the number of shields they have received for each part of the test
- information on their strengths
- areas for improvement
- and ideas on how to improve.
Take a look at an example Statement of Results.
