Why take a Cambridge Exam?

If you would like to have a formal certificate as your proof of your English ability for potential employers or educational institutions, it is worth considering taking one of the Cambridge exams. They are designed to assess how non-native speakers use English to communicate in real-life situations. They test four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) as well as vocabulary and grammar in context.

Types of Cambridge Exams

All the Cambridge exams are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) – the international standard for describing language ability. Depending on your level of English, you can choose one of the following exams:

  • FCE (First) for learners with an upper-intermediate level of English (B2)
  • CAE (Advanced) for learners with an advanced level of English (C1)
  • CPE (Proficiency) for learners with a proficiency level of English (C2)

If you are not sure which exam you should choose, please complete our online test and we will contact you with your results and advise you on which exam is the best option for you.

Further exam preparation details


The Cambridge Exam Preparation Courses ( FCE Exam Preparation Course, CAE Exam Preparation Courseand CPE Exam Preparation Course) are delivered by two teachers: one is responsible for written and grammar-focused elements of the exam preparation and the other focuses on oral and colloquial elements of the exam. Both teachers have excellent command of English and extensive professional experience as teachers of English to foreigners.

Cambridge exam paper - sample text


The syllabus prepared by Your English Language School mirrors the structure of the exam. During the course all parts of the exam and all types of exam tasks are covered. The teacher offers help on how to approach each task, how to manage your time during the exam and how to verify your answers before handing in the answer sheet. In addition to this, the syllabus covers the review of the main grammar aspects and expands upon the vocabulary which might be useful at the exam.

Mock exam

At the end of the course we organize a mock exam which can help the students plan a final revision before the exam.

Pass rates

Please note our students consistently achieve a high pass rate in the Cambridge exams - for example in the most recent exam session (July 2018) all our CPE students passed their exam. The exam itself takes place outside the school in one of a few Cambridge-approved exam centres.

Exam fees

The exam fees for the FCE, CAE and CPE exams in 2018 are, respectively 175, 185 and 200 euro. These fees are payable to the chosen exam centre, not to our school. The school helps students to register for the exam.
