What are the Cambridge exams?

FCE and CAE are official certificates issued by Cambridge English (ESOL). These English exams are recognised by thousands of employers, universities and government agencies around the world as proof of English proficiency.

  • The FCE First Certificate in English is the most internationally recognised Cambridge exam. This qualification is required by most companies. The FCE is equivalent to a B2 level of English according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
  • CAE Certificate in Advanced English - equivalent to level C1 English according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This is a high-level exam that tests your ability to function in English in complex academic and professional situations. The score range is 180-210. However, through the bridging system, it is possible to obtain a C1 SERR level. It is also possible to obtain a higher C2 level if the candidate scores above 199 or a lower B2 level if the candidate scores below 180.

Cambridge English test content

The Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English and First Certificate in English examinations are divided into 4 stages:

  • The Reading Comprehension section, which takes 1 hour and 15 minutes and consists of 7 parts and 52 questions, assesses your ability to understand the information in the text.
  • A written expression of 1 hour and 20 minutes, divided into two written pieces (letters, reports, reviews or short stories).

  • Speaking section of 14 minutes, which is paired with another candidate and assesses oral fluency in direct communication.
