Indicates a high level of competence in English for learners who are reaching a standard of English that is adequate for most purposes, including business and study. It is recognised by the majority of British universities as proof of adequate language skills for courses taught and assessed in English.
From March 2012 all candidates taking Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) are required to have their photograph taken on the day of their test.
We are introducing this because of the increase in candidates using their Cambridge English: Advanced qualification for immigration purposes and applying for work, university and college.
When candidates register to take the exam, they will be asked to sign to give their consent for the photograph. If candidates are under 18, their parents will need to give consent. ( Please see the application form)
Test day photos ensure that your exam is secure and is even more trusted and valued. Photos taken on the day of the test are made available on the Results Verification Service website along with your test results.
Candidates can control who can access their results and view their photo by giving your Candidate ID number and Candidate secret number to universities, employers and other organisations you want to be able to verify your results.
This new regulation is one of a series of measures that have been introduced by Cambridge ESOL in order to further enhance the security and integrity of the Cambridge English: Advanced examination.
