CAE exam: The Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English

The CAE exam and Work  The Cambridge ESOL examination board is famous for its suite of English language examinations that test overseas students’ English language skills across the full range of language levels. One of these exams is the CAE exam, which sits at the higher end of the scale. The successful completion of the CAE is proof that an individual has an Advanced level of English. On the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) scale, the CAE exam would be at the C1 level. There’s no doubt that to achieve a pass at the CAE exam shows that you would be of great interest to employers as you would be relied upon to perform in English in very exacting and demanding work situations. It is for this reason that success at the CAE exam has global recognition from countless universities and colleges, employers and government departments all around the world.

The CAE exam and Visas

Another important feature of the CAE exam is that it is, along with other Cambridge ESOL exams, recognised by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) as an acceptable test of English to support a visa application to come and study in the UK for a lengthy period of time (i.e. 6 months or more). Currently, if you wanted to study English for a period longer than six months then you would require a language school to sponsor you. A language school, such as SGI, who are on the UKBA Highly-Trusted sponsor register, would require of you solid evidence of your level of English by way of an internationally-recognised exam such as the CAE.
