The Cambridge exams (FCE, CAE and CPE) are essential in many countries and SELC’s Cambridge Test Preparation course, taught by highly experienced teachers, helps students achieve the best results. Studying for the Cambridge exams is both intensive and challenging and can help students gain employment and lay the foundation for their future success in business.

  • The examination consists of five papers: Reading, Writing, Use of English, Listening and Speaking.
  • (20 hours per week- face to face plus 5 hours test practice)

FCE

First (Upper Intermediate)  Daytime and Evening

FCE is the most popular of all the Cambridge examinations. It shows that students can use English confidently in a variety of situations and is proof of ability to do office work or take a course of study in English.

CAE

Advanced (Advanced)  Daytime and Evening

CAE is an increasingly popular examination for students at advanced level who may need English for work at a professional or managerial level or who want to follow a course of academic study at university level.

CPE

Proficiency (Very Advanced)  Daytime

CPE is a very high level examination for students needing a level approaching that of an educated native speaker. It is proof of ability to cope at a high academic or professional level. The course is suitable for those who have a wide vocabulary, enjoy literature and a range of other reading material.


The CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH: ADVANCED (CAE) qualification is now recognised in many Australian universities and TAFE institutions as an alternative entry requirement to IELTS and is also accepted by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) for student visa applications, as well as Temporary Graduate, Skilled, Former Resident and Work and Holiday visa programmes.
