Exam Details: Cambridge

These are the Cambridge Examinations that our preparatory courses specialise in:


Cambridge F.C.E. (First Certificate in English) is internationally recognised by higher education institutions, businesses and government bodies as proof of a learner’s language abilities at the B2 level. It is valid for the lifetime of the recipient. In Greece, under the ASEP system, it counts as 30 points in employment in the government.

Cambridge C.A.E. (Certificate of Advanced English) is a internationally recognised C1 English qualification considered to be high-level for demanding professional and academic situations. It is accepted by more than 11,000 universities and colleges, employers and government departments around the world (data from www.cambridgeesol.org) and is valid for the lifetime of the recipient. In Greece (ASEP), it counts as 50 points in governmental employment.

Cambridge C.P.E. (Cambridge Proficiency in English) is the most advanced exam that Garagani-Robertson Language Schools offers courses for. It is aimed at students who may need to use English for professional or study purposes and is most definitely an internationally recognized benchmark of achievement. Success in this C2 examination for a 13-15 year old student is, in itself, a remarkable accomplishment which remains valid for the lifetime of the recipient. At Garagani-Robertson Language Schools, we routinely allow the opportunity for young learners to obtain this exam. Under the UCAS Tariff point system (for entrance to English universities - see: www.cambridgeesol.org/UCAS-points/), students who have obtained C.P.E. and wish to apply to UK universities have distinct advantages. In Greece (ASEP), it counts as 70 points in governmental employment.

By request, the following exam can be catered for:

I.E.L.T.S. (International English Language Testing System) is an exam used by educational institutions and government agencies around the world as proof of English language skills and is therefore often part of their admittance or recruitment procedures. Over 1.4 million candidates in 130 different countries take this test every year.


Terms B2, C1, and C2 are aligned to the Common European Framework of References (CEFR) for Languages as published by the European Council and are internationally recognised as such (www.coe.int/).

The Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP) is the governing body in Greece which recognizes and assigns value to these examinations for civil service job placements (www.asep.gr/).

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is the organisation which assigns tertiary education in the UK (www.ucas.ac.uk/).
