Why should students take a Cambridge exam?
The Cambridge exam never expires, unlike other certificates.
It is recognized by recruiting companies and universities all over the world.
Both the course and the exam will improve students’ English much more than other English language courses.
What are the details of the Cambridge exam and how is the result calculated?
The first and advanced exam consists of four sections, or “papers in another sense”: reading and using the English language, writing, listening, and speaking, meaning speaking. Each student is given a result in each field and if the average score is good enough, the student will pass the exam.
• Reading and use of the English language (section value 40% of the full score): The questions include a mixture of multiple choice questions and short answers. The student will be asked for excerpts or asked to reformulate the sentence using another structure.
Writing (the section value is 20% of the full mark): The student will be asked to write one short essay and then have the ability to choose from three questions to write the second essay, while submitting a variety of written forms (letter, email, review … etc).
Listening (section value 20% of the full score): The student will be presented with a variety of audio modules to help them answer multiple choice questions, short answers, and link or match questions.
Speaking or speaking (the section value is 20% of the full mark): This section of the exam is taken on a different day than the day students take the previous sections, and it is in the form of pairs or groups of three students.
