Why Cambridge English
You are here:
Results are in! This is an exciting but equally anxious time for your teachers, students and parents. Resources have been created specifically to help teachers understand results and present how they’re reported to students and parents in a clear and easy to understand way.
You can download your students’ results, including your archived results, using our Online Results Service. If you’re having trouble accessing results online, contact your authorised exam centre.
All candidates receive a Statement of Results, and if they are successful in the exam they will also receive a certificate.
Statements of Results are released online, approximately four to six weeks after the exam for paper-based exams, and two to three weeks after the exam for computer-based exams. The majority of your students’ results will be available at the start of the release window, with any outstanding results being released in the days following.
The fastest way for your students to get their results is by registering for our free Online Results Service, using the Candidate ID Number and the Secret Number on their Confirmation of Entry. As soon as their result is available, they will receive a notification email.
Employers, universities or other organisations can use the online Results Verification Service to check your students’ results quickly, easily and securely.
Your students must send them their Candidate ID and Secret Number (printed on their Confirmation of Entry).
From January 2015 we started using a new way of reporting results for our exams to provide you with more detailed information about exam performance – the Cambridge English Scale.
The Cambridge English Scale is a range of scores used for reporting the results of Cambridge English Qualifications. It is built on our existing results reporting and years of research, and is designed to complement the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Learn more about the Cambridge English Scale and the benefits it brings to results reporting.
Cambridge English Qualifications provide institutions with meaningful, detailed results for applicants. Our in-depth exams encourage learners to develop their language skills. They provide a reliable indicator of language ability, reducing the risk that students’ English does not match expectations. They help colleges and universities to be sure of a student’s English language skills.
We have developed a guide to understanding results for our exams, designed for use by further and higher education institutions. It includes information about B2 First, C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency.
You can use our Online Results Service to review performance reports for your preparation centre. The reports enable registered preparation centres to see how your students performed by skill, by grade, by Cambridge English Scale score, etc., and to compare performance by year and against national and global averages. The reports cover all Cambridge English Qualifications from Pre A1 Starters to C2 Proficiency, including all of the Cambridge English Qualifications Business exams. To access the reports, log in to the Online Results Service using your preparation centre’s normal log-in details, and click on the Performance Reports tab. The user guide explains how the reports work.
