The Cambridge First Certificate of English – FCE – is the third level of the Cambridge Exams for Speakers of other languages (ESOL).

The exam is described as being at upper-intermediate or ‘independent user’ level. It is the most popular exam. FCE is recognised by many universities and other educational institutions as proof of an upper-intermediate level of English and these institutions take on students who have passed the exam. The FCE is recognised around the world.

The exam consists of five papers: Reading (1 hour), Writing (1 hour and 20 minutes), Use of English (45 minutes), Listening (14 minutes) and Speaking (14 minutes). Reading frequent questions and their answers helps potential canditates to become more familiar with the exam procedure.

The exam dates are the same worldwide and students can take the exam in almost every country.

We are holding a three-week FCE preparation course from 18 May to 5 June. Please check the our website for further information.
