All candidates taking Cambridge English Advanced (CAE) are required to have their photograph taken on the day of their test.
This was introduced because of the increase in candidates using the Cambridge English Advanced qualification for immigration purposes and applying for work, university and college.
When you register to take the exam, you will be asked to sign a consent form in order to have your photo taken. If you are under 18, your parents will need to sign the 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.
You can control who can access your results and view your 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.
