Cambridge English Language Assessments are mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference. This is an internationally recognized scale of measuring language proficiency. At NGIS, our students will sit for Cambridge assessments annually, so all students will receive a series of internationally recognized English language certifications.
English for Young Learners
The Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) tests are designed for young learners in primary and lower secondary education who are taking their first steps in English. The tests include tasks designed to motivate young children, such as drawing, colouring and solving puzzles.
General English and for Schools
Cambridge English: Key (KET), Cambridge English: Preliminary (PET) and Cambridge English: First (FCE) are designed for learners who need English for work, study and travel. They also help learners working towards higher level qualifications such as Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) and Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE).
The qualifications are offered in two versions: for adult learners and for school-aged learners in lower and upper secondary school education. Both versions lead to the same qualification. The only difference is that the topics in the ‘for Schools’ version are targeted at the interests and experiences of school-aged learners.
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) has become a natural exit level for many school learners, due to ever-growing demands for English language proficiency and is accepted around the world for higher education study, work and migration purposes. Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) is also available for exceptional school learners with the ability to use English at near-native levels.
