Cambridge CPE Course

What is the CPE? Proficiency (CPE) is the highest level of examination of the Cambridge Assessment exams at C2 of the Common European Framework of the Council of Europe.

A C2 Proficiency qualification shows the world that you have mastered English to an exceptional level. It proves you can communicate with the fluency and sophistication of a highly competent English speaker.  Preparing for and passing the exam means you have the level of English that’s needed to study or work in a very senior professional or academic environment, for example on a postgraduate or PhD programme.

The CPE is part of the leading Cambridge English exams, closely linked to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework for modern languages ​​(CEF) and accredited by QCA – the UK government exam supervisory body.

Who is the CPE for? The Proficiency targets students who have acquired a good knowledge of English and are able to master it in almost all situations. Passing this exam not only certifies a knowledge of the English language comparable to that of an educated native speaker, but, requiring a certain degree of personal and scholastic maturity, also represents the achievement of a significant individual goal. More than 45,000 people pass proficiency exams every year.

How is the exam structured? The CPE includes four tests:

  • Reading and Use of English
  • Writing
  • Listening
  • Spoken language

Each written test is sent to Cambridge for proofreading and grading. The spoken language test is conducted directly at the authorized centers by two local examiners accredited by Cambridge Assessment English.

– Reading and Use of English (test 1): 1 hour and 30 minutes
The reading session evaluates the candidates’ ability to read and understand passages taken from texts of different genres: fiction and non-fiction books, magazines, newspapers, periodicals. Candidates must be able to grasp the meaning of the English text in relation to words, individual sentences, paragraphs and full text: this implies understanding the content of the text, layout and structure, developing ideas, opinions and attitudes . The session of using English requires you to complete various tasks at the level of words, sentences and text; verifies the candidate’s skills in mastering the language system

– Writing (test 2):  1 hour and 30 minutes
The writing test certifies the ability of candidates to write non-specialized texts – such as letters, articles, reports and reviews – aimed at a given purpose and aimed at a given reader, over a wide range of topics. In addition, the test includes questions on texts, where the answers must contain a certain number of words.

– Listening (test 3): 40 minutes (approximately)
The listening test requires candidates to listen to and understand passages taken from different types of text, such as interviews, discussions, readings and conversations: therefore it assesses the ability to understand the meaning of spoken English , extract information from a speech and grasp the attitudes and opinions of the speaker.

– Spoken language (test 4): 16 minutes
The oral test assesses the candidate’s ability to interact during a conversation in various contexts. Stimulated by images and writings, candidates must take a test consisting of three parts: the answer to questions posed by the examiner, an interactive conversation and the presentation of topics with final discussion.
