Your Cambridge YLE results
All Young Learners will receive an award that will give them – and you – a clear view of their progress, and their strengths and weaknesses in different areas. The award will show how many ‘shields’ your child received. The test is in three parts and the maximum score is five shields for each part of the test (15 in total). A result of one shield means your child has room for improvement in that skill; five shields mean that your child did very well in that skill and answered most questions correctly.
If they get 10 or 11 shields and above, then your child should be ready to move on to the next Cambridge YLE exam in the series – and then progress onto one of our exams for young adults such as Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE).
