The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an international standardised test of English language proficiency recognised by most institutions in English-speaking countries and many employers. Also, those who would like to go to Canada and New Zealand need an IELTS qualification.
Therefore, taking the test will allow you to open new perspectives, whether you wish to pursue your studies in an English-speaking country or work and live in these countries. IELTS also offers you recognition of your English language skills if you need this in your home country.
At the end of the test, a Test Report Form is issued to all candidates with a score from “band 1″ (“non-user”) to “band 9″ (“expert user”) and each institution sets a different threshold. There is also a “band 0″ score for those who did not attempt the test.

This is an extension of the IELTS Intermediate course and is designed for those who have advanced level English or above (C1 level of CEFR in English). It is a more in-depth look at the necessary skills for the exam than the introductory IELTS course.
The demand for high-level English language skills is increasing all around the world. Passing the Cambridge English: Advanced exam (CAE) shows that you are a high achiever.
This exam is set at Level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The exam consists of 5 equally-weighted papers:
Preparing for the Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) helps learners develop the skills to make the most of studying, working and living in English speaking countries.
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) shows that a student has the language ability to carry out complex research, communicate effectively at a professional level – and stand out from the crowd.
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) offers proof of the English skills that educational institutions and employers seek for high-achieving study and work situations.
The Cambridge English: First (FCE) exam is an upper-intermediate level qualification. It proves you can use every day written and spoken English for work or study purposes.
Every year, thousands of people who want to use English to improve their work and study prospects take the FCE exam and they can use it to help them study in English at foundation or pathway level.

This exam is accepted as a qualification in upper-intermediate English by many leading businesses and educational institutions around the world. The FCE exam is set at Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Reaching this level means you can understand the main ideas of complex pieces of writing, keep up a conversation on a fairly wide range of topics, express opinions and present arguments and produce clear, detailed writing, expressing opinions and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different points of view.
The Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) is the most advanced General English exam provided by Cambridge University. It proves that the level of those who passed the CPE is similar to educated native speakers of English, graded at C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The exam is designed for those who want to study or work and live abroad in an English-speaking country or in an environment that requires high proficiency in the English language.
Both the TOEFL and the TOEIC measure your English language proficiency. The difference between the two is not their level of difficulty but their purpose. While the TOEFL covers academic issues, the TOEIC includes business related topics.

This examination is designed for those who wish to prove their English language abilities to institutions, especially students who would like to study at university level in English-speaking countries.

The test takes four hours in total and covers the four basic language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking, while some exercises require integrating multiple skills. All tasks focus on the English language used in an academic environment.
The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is an English language test designed specifically to measure the everyday English skills of people working in an international environment.
This exam is used by employers worldwide to determine who – among non-native English speakers – can communicate effectively in English. Over 10,000 organisations in 120 countries use this examination to decide which candidate has the appropriate English language skills to succeed in the global work place.
