10 Week Examination Programme
If your aim is to improve your career prospects or enter a British university, look no further than our Examination programmes. These are 10-week preparation courses for all Cambridge exams (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE and BEC) and IELTS.
The aim of the examination programme is to familiarise you with all exam components and to give practice in exam skills. Examination programmes are coursebook-based, however, there is a wide range of supplementary materials available in our Self-study centre. All students will have the opportunity to do a mock exam, usually around week 8. The actual exams are taken locally and are timed to take place immediately after the course has finished.
Levels and Exams
On average students move up four Globe levels during an academic year. If a student comes to us as a beginner, we would expect them to reach upper-intermediate by the end of the year. However, this is only a guideline as not all students progress at the same rate. To enter British Universities and Colleges, students are usually required to have reached at least FCE or IELTS score 5.5. For guaranteed entry students need CAE or CPE, or equivalent IELTS score. Here is a look at how the levels correspond and exams are structured:
|Advanced||CAE & BEC H||7.5|
|Upper-Intermediate||FCE & BEC V||5.5|
|Intermediate||PET & BEC P||5-4-3|
