Interpretation of results
As of January 2015 Cambridge English presents the results on the Cambridge English Scale. This scale is a scoring system that covers a wide range of language skills and will help you to understand more clearly the results obtained in the Cambridge certificates and to compare your skills as you progress to higher levels.
The Cambridge English Scale score, aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, collects scores between 80 and 230. Each level of the CEFR covers 20 points on the Cambridge English Scale.
The report of results of each Cambridge English exam will include, with the implementation of the Cambridge English Scale, the points obtained in each of the four skills that evaluate these certificates: expression and written comprehension and oral expression and comprehension, in addition to the "Use of English". Likewise, it will include the total score obtained from the average of the five individual scores.
What are the advantages of this new way of scoring?
- The results appear more detailed: candidates receive a score for each skill, in addition to a global score.
- They are simple and coherent.
- The performance on the exam can be easily checked and compared: the adequacy of the Cambridge exams to the CEFR, the IELTS and each other is very clear. The results on the scale also gives a better understanding of the candidate's progression from one exam to the next.
Results Verification Service
If you want a university, company or any other organization to verify your results, you must provide the information included in your Statement of Results and two additional elements:
- Your ID Number (a sequence of 9 letters and numbers).
- Your secret number (a four-digit number)
You will find both numbers in your Confirmation of Entry, which you will receive when you register for the exam. The results can be accessed from www.cambridgeenglish.org/verifiers
Collection of certificates
The Certificate is issued a few weeks later and you must collect it, personally or through an authorized person, at Loyola SOL Office, at Campus Palmas Altas, if you did the exam in Seville or at the ETEA Campus, if you did it in Córdoba. You will receive an email indicating that your certificate os ready for collection. If you enrolled through a Preparatory Center, you must pick up your certificate there.
Loss of certificates
If you have lost your certificate, you can request a document accrediting your level of English (Cambridge does not duplicate the Certificate) from Cambridge English paying the amount pre-established by Cambridge. It is therefore extremely important that you keep your certificates in a safe place as they are unique and valuable documents.
