Individual candidates

Candidates now have direct access to their results via the Cambridge English Online Results Service. Each candidate's personal timetable will include login details and candidates will also receive an e-mail notifying them that the results release period has begun. Please note that candidates must retain their timetables until they have received their results.

English Language Preparation Centres

All Preparation Centres that register candidates for Cambridge English Qualifications examinations will be able to access their students' results and Statement of Results directly on the Cambridge English site for Preparation Centres. Following registration, you will receive an email with login details. Please note that candidates who have registered through a centre can sign up to the Cambridge English Online Results Service.

Certificates

If you have passed your exam, your certificate will be sent to your British Council examination centre approximately two months after your results are released.

If you registered as an individual candidate, you can collect your certificate from the British Council examination centre in person or by an authorised person, or it could be sent to you by post or a courier at your expense. Before the certificate is sent you must fill in the appropriate request.

If you registered through your school or a Preparation Centre, you can collect your certificate from the British Council examination centre in person or authorise a representative of your school to collect it on your behalf.

Certificates from Cambridge English Qualifications designed for young learners (YLE)

Everyone who completes their Cambridge English Qualifications test (YLE) will receive an award from the Cambridge English Language Assessment within approximately 6-8 weeks.

The YLE certificates show your performance in each part of the test – Listening, Reading and Writing and Speaking. For each part of the test you receive one or more Cambridge shields (up to a maximum of five), with a possible total of 15 shields for the whole test.

New Cambridge English scale

From January 2015, Cambridge Assessment English has started using a new way of reporting results for their exams - the Cambridge English Qualifications Scale. It replaces the current candidate profile and standardised scores. Grades (A, B, C) and Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels will be retained.

The new scores provide you with more detailed information about your exam performance in each of the four skills (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) and in Use of English. These scores also make clear the alignment of Cambridge Qualifications exams with each other, and with the CEFR.

Exam results will be reported on the Cambridge English Qualifications Scale for sessions held after the following dates:

  • From January 2015 – B2 First (FCE), B2 First for Schools (FCE for Schools), C1 Advanced (CAE) i C2 Proficiency (CPE);
  • From August 2015 – A2 Key (KET), A2 Key for Schools (KET for Schools), B1 Preliminary (PET) i B1 Preliminary for Schools (PET for Schools);
  • From September 2015 – Cambridge English Qualifications dedicated for business purposes.

More information about the Cambridge English Qualifications Scale can be found at Cambridge Assessment English website.

Extended certification

Extended Certification, which gives more information on a candidate’s language skills presented against the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), was introduced by Cambridge Assessment English in March 2011. From January 2015 it is also a part of a new Cambridge English Qualifications scale.
