All candidates receive a Statement of Results, and if they are successful in the exam they will also receive a certificate.
Statements of Results are released online, approximately four to six weeks after the exam for paper-based exams, and two to three weeks after the exam for computer-based exams. The majority of your students’ results will be available at the start of the release window, with any outstanding results being released in the days following.
Your Statement of Results will include:
Your result - the final grade you obtained for your exam.
Your overall score - your overall Cambridge English Scale score for the whole exam.
Your individual component scores - your Cambridge English Scale score for each of the skills measured by the exam; Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking (and Use of English for some exams). With these individual scores you easily see how you performed across the exam and which skills you may need to improve on.
You can find more detailed information about your results on the Results page for your exam:
Individual paper performance is not provided for those candidates with grade X (absent from part of the examination), grade Z (absent from all of the examination), or PENDING (result to follow).
