About the CAE exam

The Cambridge Advanced English exam is a globally-recognised qualification offered by Cambridge English Language Assessment, part of the University of Cambridge. Students who pass the exam will receive a certificate which can be used as proof of their English level, for example when applying for a job.

Students who pass the exam with grade B or grade C will receive a certificate to prove that their level is C1 in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).

Students who pass with grade A will receive a certificate to prove that their level is C2 in the CEFR, the highest level.
