Exam Preparation Courses

 

We are one of the leading providers in Exam Preparation Courses for the following Cambridge Exams:

  • FCE / First Certificate Exam
  • CAE / Cambridge Advanced Exam
  • CPE / Cambridge Proficiency Exam

We also offer excellent Exam Preparation Courses for the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) Exams.

We are an official Cambridge and TOEIC Exam Centre. As a result, the FCE, CAE, CPE and TOEIC exams can be taken at our school, at the end of the preparation courses.

Our Exam Preparation Courses feature regular tutorials and oral & written practice, using past exam papers. Please note that all students who wish to take an Exam Preparation Course must pass an entrance test beforehand, to ensure they are taking the exam best suited to their level.

We recommend that students register for their exam a minimum of 5 weeks in advance. Speaking exams will be scheduled before the end of the course. Students will be notified of the specific time and date of their speaking exam, approximately 2 weeks beforehand.
