Computer-based Exams - Free Practice Tests
Most Cambridge English exams are available to be taken as a computer or paper-based test. This has added more exam dates each year allowing the exam to be taken when candidates are ready for it.
Paper-based (PB) and computer-based (CB) tests are different versions of the same exam.They lead to exactly the same certificate and are scored in exactly the same way. The two versions allow you more choice in how you take the exam.
If you take the computer-based exam, you can register for your exam later (up to three weeks before the exam date) and you will receive your exam results more quickly (in two weeks instead of four weeks for paper-based tests).
|There is a huge range of free exam preparation resources for candidates and for teachers preparing students for the Cambridge English exams. You can download sample papers with answer keys, worksheets, vocabulary lists, classroom activities, exam guides and the Handbook for Teachers for each exam.|
There is also a comprehensive publisher list where you will find the official study books and the books available for each Cambridge English exam.

Cambridge Assessment English provides adaptations to make its examinations more accessible to candidates with special requirements. For example, special arrangements might be available for candidates with a specific learning difficulty, hearing or visual impairment or limited mobility.
To request special arrangements, the candidate must send us a medical certificate along with a brief explanation of the adaptation/s they request via email before the deadline for their exam session.
Candidates who require modified exam materials must register for their exam and contact us with their request no less than 8 weeks before the exam date to ensure there is enough time for their materials to be ordered and for them to arrive from Cambridge before their exam.
