Cambridge Examination Preparation Courses  All centres

Cambridge English Language Assessment provides a number of internationally recognised examinations for people who need formal certification of their English language proficiency.

Cambridge Examination Courses at CES are designed to prepare students for one of the following Cambridge Examinations:

  • First Certificate in English  - FCE (B2 First)
  • Certificate in Advanced English - CAE (C1 Advanced)

The Cambridge Examinations usually take place four times per year, mid-March, mid-June, mid-August, and mid-December. Our courses are planned to finish on the week before the exam will take place. Students planning to take the FCE course should be at minimum level B2 (upper-intermediate) and for the CAE at C1 (advanced) level. We cannot accept a student for any examination course until CES has confirmed the student is at the appropriate level for their chosen examination.

Please see our Level Guide on page 34 of our adult brochure or contact us today at info@ces-schools.com to take the CES placement test. Please note that CES Dublin, CES Harrogate, CES Leeds and CES Toronto are official Cambridge Test centres, so you can take your exam in the same CES school you studied in. Other CES centres will help you apply for and organise your examination.
