What will FCE do for you?

Attaining an FCE certificate is an achievement and a reward in itself. However, there are many other benefits to taking FCE:

  • an FCE certificate is valid for life
  • FCE is an internationally recognised qualification for business and study purposes
  • thousands of employers, universities and government departments officially recognised FCE as a qualification in upper-intermediate English.
  • FCE gives you a pathway to higher qualifications such as the Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) and Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE)

The examination fee for FCE is about £150.

What’s in the exam?

The updated exam (for exam sessions from January 2015) is made up of four papers developed to test your English language skills. You can see exactly what’s in each paper below.

The Speaking test is taken face-to-face, with two candidates and two examiners. This creates a more realistic and reliable measure of your ability to use English to communicate.
