Results and Certificate

Your results

If you are successful in the exam you will receive two documents: a Statement of Results and a certificate. Universities, employers and other organisations you apply to may ask you for either of these documents as proof of your English language skills.

This page contains information about how to interpret your exam result and how your result can be verified by third parties who may wish to check the validity of your Cambridge Assessment English result.

The Cambridge Assessment English Scale

Since January 2015, Cambridge Assessment English have been using a new way of reporting results for our exams that will provide you with more detailed information about exam performance – the Cambridge Assessment English Scale.

The Cambridge Assessment English Scale is a range of scores used for reporting the results of Cambridge Assessment English exams. It is built on the existing results reporting and years of research, and is designed to complement the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The Cambridge Assessment English Scale allows for more straightforward results reporting across the exams and better meets the needs of our exam users, including candidates, teachers, universities and immigration departments.

Benefits:

  • More detailed results – candidates receive a score for each skill (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) plus Use of English. They also get an overall score for the exam on the Cambridge Assessment English Scale.

  • Straightforward and consistent – results across the exams will report on the same scale. Scores on the Cambridge Assessment English Scale will replace the existing standardized scores and candidate profile.

  • Easy to compare performance – the alignment of the exams to the CEFR, to IELTS and to each other is clear. Results on the scale also give a greater insight into candidate progression from one exam to the next.

Setting your requirements

Setting your English language requirements is simple using the Cambridge Assessment English Scale.

It is important to consider both the level of English needed for your courses and which exam is most suited to your needs. This will depend on the level of study and the subject(s) being studied.

Each of the Cambridge Assessment English exams is targeted at a different level of the CEFR, which means they assess a candidate on a wide range of skills and knowledge at that level. The context of questions is also appropriate to the level being assessed, with higher levels having a greater academic focus.

As a guide, the following exams are recommended for the different levels of study:

Foundation/pre-sessional
Cambridge Assessment English: First

- Targeted at CEFR Level B2
- Reports on the Cambridge Assessment English Scale between 122 and 190

Undergraduate & postgraduate
Cambridge Assessment English: Advanced

- Targeted at CEFR Level C1
- Reports on the Cambridge Assessment English Scale between 142 and 210

Postgraduate
Cambridge Assessment English: Proficiency
- Targeted at CEFR Level C2
- Reports on the Cambridge Assessment English Scale between 162 and 230

The Cambridge Assessment English Scale makes it easy to:

  • specify the overall score you need

  • specify minimum scores for the individual skills.

You can use the table to the right to ensure that the Cambridge Assessment English Scale score you ask for is at the same level as your CEFR requirements.
