Cambridge English Language Assessment, being one of the founders of the Association of Language Testers in Europe, aligns all of its exams to the CEFR system of ‘can-do’ definitions. These exams assess true competence and require extensive preparation.

More specifically, the exams we run from the Cambridge suite for General and Academic English are:

  • Key (KET)
  • Preliminary (PET) – this is the standard exam used by the UK Home Office for Visa and Citizenship
  • First (FCE)
  • Advanced (CAE)
  • Proficiency (CPE)

For Business, we offer

  • Business (BEC Preliminary)
  • Business (BEC Vantage)
  • Business (BEC Higher)

In addition we prepare people for the Cambridge IELTS exam, increasingly used by Higher education establishments for entry onto, for example, MBA courses.

The TOEIC test provides a snapshot of a candidate’s level in English on a given day, requires minimal preparation and can be sat as a paper test or computer test. Many companies in and outside Europe use this test as a quick way to assess the level of English.
