Cambridge ESOL exams are increasingly available to be taken as a computer-based test.

Not only has this added more exam dates each year, but candidates can register for the exam as little as three weeks before taking it - allowing the exam to be taken when candidates are ready for it.

There are a number of other benefits to computer-based testing:

  • faster access to results, with scores available to be seen online just three weeks after the test
  • many students are more comfortable completing a test with a keyboard and mouse rather than paper and pen
  • test takers can edit their answers on screen during the exam
  • the use of headphones for the listening elements of tests mean that they can adjust the volume to suit their needs
  • online timer and help functions allow candidates to get the best from their exam performance.

If you are considering taking a computer-based test, remember:

  • The computer-based test is another choice in how you take our exams - it does not replace the paper and pen test. Other than the method of completing them, the exams are exactly the same, and they both lead to the same internationally recognised Cambridge ESOL certificate. Extensive research and trials have been carried out to make sure this is the case.
  • The security of computer-based exams is protected by state-of-the-art encryption and an on screen lock-down facility.

Please see the TKT or CLIL-KAL pages on this website for detailed information on the exams.

Late registration and cancellations

A late registration fee of 24 € per candidate will be charged for 'Computer Based' entries received during the week after the end of the registration period. If a candidate is unable to attend an exam session on medical grounds, a 24 € administration fee will be retained by the centre and the remainder of the fees will be returned to the candidate. No refund will be made for any other reason.

Special arrangements for candidates

Cambridge ESOL provides a Special Arrangements service for some candidates, for example those with learning difficulties, hearing difficulties or visual difficulties.

We also have information on the range of modified materials that can be provided for candidates with special requirements.


IMPORTANT

In order to avoid spelling mistakes on exam certificates, please make sure that candidates' names and surnames are spelt correctly and that you have included their date of birth. The centre cannot accept responsibility for spelling mistakes or missing accents on final certificates. Schools registering groups of students should provide us with their name, address, email and telephone number so that we can issue results directly to the school.
