COMMON EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK OF REFERENCE (CEFR)

The Common European Framework of Reference plays a very central role in language and education policy not only in Europe, but also around the world. The CEFR is an important part of Language Ability Testers to help define language level skills and interpret language qualifications.

The CEFR describes language skills on a scale consisting of 6 levels starting from level A1 for beginners to C2 for those who are advanced. This makes it easy for everyone involved in language teaching and testing (students, teachers, trainers, and others) to see different qualification levels. This also means that employees and educational institutions can easily compare qualifications and see how they are related to Cambridge English exams.

All Cambridge English exams are in accordance with the levels outlined by the CEFR.

CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH SCALE

The Cambridge English Scale is an assessment used to report the results of a Cambridge English exam. The Cambridge English Scale is based on years of results and research reports and is designed to complement the CEFR. The Cambridge English Scale enables easier reporting of exam results and better meets the needs for exam users such as participants, teachers, universities, and immigration departments.

The Cambridge English Scale allows:

More detailed results – candidates receive a score for each skill (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) plus Use of English. They also get an overall score for the exam on the Cambridge English Scale.
Straightforward and consistent – results across our exams report on the same scale. Scores on the Cambridge English Scale replace the standardised scores and candidate profile.
Easy to compare performance – the alignment of our exams to the CEFR, to IELTS (in English) and to each other is clear. Results on the scale also give a greater insight into candidate progression from one exam to the next.
