Official Exams

Companies are increasingly requiring that the language skills of their employees (and of candidates looking for work with them) are accredited by official certificates. And, for some years now, Catalan universities have required students to obtain a B2 level foreign language (eg. First Certificate) before being able to graduate. For English, the most well-known exams are the prestigious University of Cambridge certificates, among them, First Certificate.

Why at Cambridge School?

  • Our students benefit from having the best pedagogic resources available, specialised native teachers and our long experience in successfully preparing students for the exams.
  • Over 2,500 Cambridge School students have passed University of Cambridge exams in the last 15 years.
  • Cambridge School has the undisputed record of students prepared for the First Certificate, the most widely recognised certificate in the world, with more than 1,500 students having attained the certificate since 2000.
  • We offer preparation classes for the official exams, based around intensive courses and mock exams, which are excellent practice for doing the real exam.
  • Cambridge School is an Exam Preparation Centre, which means candidates can do the exam in the school they study at and will do the speaking part with their classmates doing the same certificate, thereby reducing exam nerves.

Cambridge School has been chosen to be part of the pilot project Cambridge English Language Assessment in Spain. Being selected for this new category of Cambridge English, amounts to recognition for Cambridge School as a leading centre for preparing students for the official exams.

Why the Cambridge English exams?

The Cambridge English exams are the most prestigious English qualifications in the world for students. They are accepted in over 15,000 universities, companies and governments worldwide. They can help you access higher education, further your career and, owing to their international recognition, improve your work and study opportunities.

All Cambridge English exams assess speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. They also assess knowledge of English vocabulary and grammar.
