The in-depth, high-level qualification that shows you have the language skills that employers and universities are looking for.
More than 6,000 educational institutions, businesses and government departments around the world accept Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) as proof of high-level achievement in learning English.
Preparing for Cambridge English: Advanced helps learners develop the skills to make the most of studying, working and living in English-speaking countries.
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is a thorough test of all areas of language ability.
The updated exam (for exam sessions from January 2015) is made up of four papers developed to test your English language skills. You can see exactly what’s in each paper below.
The Speaking test is taken face to face, with two candidates and two examiners. This creates a more realistic and reliable measure of your ability to use English to communicate.

From January 2015, Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) results will be reported on the new Cambridge English Scale (replacing the candidate profile and standardised scores used before 2015).
You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and use of English, giving you a clear understanding of your performance. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. You will also be given a grade and Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level.
All candidates receive a Statement of Results, and if you are successful in the exam you will also receive a certificate.
Depending on which university, college or organisation you are applying to, you may be asked to achieve a specific score or grade, either overall or for a particular skill. For Cambridge English: Advanced, the following scores will be used to report results:
The exam is targeted at Level C1 of the CEFR. The examination also provides reliable assessment at the level above C1 (Level C2) and the level below (Level B2).
Scores between 142 and 159 are also reported for Cambridge English: Advanced. You will not receive a certificate, but your Cambridge English Scale score will be shown on your Statement of Results.
The relationship between the CEFR levels, the Cambridge English Scale and the grades awarded in Cambridge English: Advanced is illustrated below:
