Why should you sit for the FCE Exam?
FCE is recognized by many universities and other educational institutions as proof of intermediate level English skills, and these institutions accept it as meeting part of their entrance requirements. Because the examinations are based on realistic tasks, an FCE certificate is an important asset for anyone who wants to work or study abroad, or in international business. Employers throughout the world recognize FCE. It indicates sufficient proficiency in English to be of practical use in clerical, secretarial and managerial jobs in many industries, in particular tourism, where contact with English speakers is required. Successful students have the ability to deal with routine letters and telephone enquiries, and to cope with some non-academic training courses and simple textbooks and articles. Studying for FCE will also help learners to improve their language skills and to use them in a wide range of contexts.
Like all the Cambridge exams, the FCE is recognised around the world. The FCE validates your English language skills in a precise, reliable and official manner. This exam’s excellent reputation means that your level is recognised by employers, schools and universities in Great Britain and in the majority of anglo-saxon countries.

Successful completion of this exam is officially recognised with a certificate that will be delivered to you by the ESOL exam centre of the University of Cambridge. Each year, over 270 000 people from over 100 different countries pass the FCE.
If evaluation of your level of English is necessary for your career or your studies, the FCE will be your first academic and professional “passport”.
