Advice about FCE, CAE & IELTS exam classes

Thinking of taking an exam?

At Castle School we offer exam preparation classes in FCE, CAE and IELTS. In these classes you will learn ways to read long texts, write in different styles and listen to longer audio pieces. You will learn about the exam and practise the best way to answer exam questions. Due to the advanced level, it is important that your English skills are suitable before you start your exam course.

What level do I need to be?

The FCE (First Certificate in English) is for students who have an upper-intermediate (B2) level of English.
The CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) is a high level qualification equivalent to C1. Students undertaking a CAE qualification should have already taken and passed the FCE.
IELTS tests the language ability of people who want to study or work where English is the form of communication. Most students taking IELTS require a band score of between 5-7. This is equivalent to B2 level and so if you want to get a good score in IELTS, you should have spent some time at that level before joining an IELTS class.

How long do I need to study?

At Castle School, we recommend at least 12 weeks of study for 15 hours per week for a good B2 level student. We also suggest a large amount of self-study and completing all homework set in class. With hard work and support from Castle School's friendly and professional teachers, you can get the score you want.
