Cambridge Exams

Cambridge Young Learner ESOL exams are for children aged between 7 and 12 years old. We prepare our students to sit the exams when they are 9, 10, 11 or 12 years old in order to give them the best chance of obtaining a high score in the exam. It is impossible to fail the exams, so if your child takes part in the exam, he or she will obtain a certificate regardless of his or her performance. There are three parts to each exam. Reading and Writing, Listening and finally Speaking.

Cambridge award shields for each part. There are five shields available in each part giving each candidate the possibility of obtaining 15 shields. That is the maximum score in the exam, but with a score of 10 shields, your child will have demonstrated that he or she has a high enough level of English to continue to the next level.
