Cambridge English 2015

Introducing the Scale

The Cambridge English Scale is a new approach to reporting results across the range of Cambridge English exams. Initially, this will apply to Cambridge English: First, First for Schools, Advanced and Proficiency from January 2015. Other exams will be added to the scale during 2015.

The Cambridge English Scale scores will replace the current candidate profile and standardised scores. Grades and Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) levels will be retained. The new scores provide richer information by reporting on a candidate’s 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 our exams with each other, and with the CEFR.
