Cambridge Certificate Examinations Overview

B1 Preliminary (former Cambridge Preliminary English Test-PET) recognises the ability to cope with everyday written and spoken communication. It indicates an ability to deal with situations which require a predictable use of language, read simple textbooks and articles, and write simple personal letters. Cambridge B1 preparation enhances skills for straightforward linguistic tasks and basic text comprehension and composition.

B2 First (former Cambridge First Certificate in English-FCE) recognises the ability to deal confidently with a range of written and spoken communication. Successful candidates will have a wide grasp of vocabulary, should be able to construct an argument and use appropriate communication styles for a variety of situations. Cambridge B2 preparation courses provide comprehensive training in these areas, enhancing linguistic skills for real-world application.

C1 Advanced (former Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English-CAE) is an advanced English exam, and is for learners who have reached a standard of English that is adequate for most purposes. Success at this level indicates the ability to use English effectively and perform confidently in social and professional situations, and in higher education. Cambridge C1 preparation involves comprehensive study, practice tests, and mastering complex English language skills for academic and professional success.

C2 Proficiency (former Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English-CPE) is the highest level of the Cambridge exams and is recognised by universities and employers around the world. CPE is for learners who have achieved a high level of language skills and are approaching a standard of English similar to that of a native speaker. Cambridge C2 preparation involves advanced study materials, practice tests, and consistent language skill refinement to attain near-native fluency.
