Cambridge Preliminary Exam 2020

The Cambridge Preliminary exam is the next step after the Cambridge Key A2 and is great preparation for the Cambridge First B2. The Cambridge Preliminary exam is a qualification that shows your future employers, your University or your school that you have good understanding and control of the basics of English and you now have practical language skills.

The Cambridge Preliminary exam is a fully-recognised exam in Spain and the Valencia region and is an essential skill for many jobs and University degrees nowadays.

The Cambridge Preliminary exam has 3 papers which last around 2 hours and 20 minutes. The exam tests the four abilities of Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening and each of these elements is worth 25% of the overall result. If students achieve between 140 and 160 points on the Cambridge Scale then they have achieved a B1 level of English while students who finish between 120 and 140 will receive an A2 certificate.

Students who do not get more than 120 points fail the exam and will not receive and qualification which is why we strongly recommend attend our preparation classes where you will receive expert guidance and tuition on how to get through the Cambridge Preliminary Exam.
