Cambridge English Exam: First Certificate or FCE

This certificate level is: B2 or Upper Intermediate.

This Cambridge exam tests your range of spoken and written English. It tests your English language skills, your English vocabulary and your grammar.

This exam is one of the most widely recognised in the world. With content and topics tailored to your needs, the test measures your ability and range of spoken and written English. Speakers at this level can express themselves clearly on a range of subjects. As an example; using English, you would be comfortable showing visitors around a building, and you would be able to give a detailed description of your surroundings.

Many foundation and pathway university courses in the UK accept the Cambridge English First Certificate.
