The Certificate of Proficiency exam is an advanced level exam for candidates who have a fairly proficient level of English already. The course is challenging and rigorous. Our experienced teachers will help you to understand the intricacies of the CPE exam.


This is the highest Cambridge certification level and indicates full English proficiency in any academic or professional situation. Students who reach this level are approaching the linguistic competence of an educated native speaker. A CPE student's level of English gives him/her access to the press and other media, and to areas of culture such as film, drama and literature. CPE is also recognised by most British universities for entrance level language requirements.


The CPE exam comprises 5 parts:

  • Paper 1 - Reading
  • Paper 2 - Writing
  • Paper 3 - Use of English (Grammar)
  • Paper 4 - Listening
  • Paper 5 - Speaking


Students wishing to take the Access English School CPE preparation program must firstly undertake a Cambridge pre-entry test which will indicate a student's current level of proficiency. We can do this either prior to the student's arrival (via fax) and/or on their first day.
