Results information for Cambridge English candidates who have already taken an exam and want feedback on their performance.
Can I see my exam papers?
It is not possible to see your completed exam papers and we are unable to release your exam papers or any other work that you completed as part of your exam to you. This is part of the Cambridge English Regulations, which you can view here.
How can I get information about my performance in the exam?
After completing a Cambridge English exam, you will receive a Statement of Results. This document gives you lots of useful information about your performance in the exam, and is the extent to which we provide feedback regarding your exam performance. It is not possible, for example, to receive detailed feedback on individual questions and/or mistakes made in an exam.
From January 2015 B2 First, B2 First for Schools, C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency results are reported using the Cambridge English Scale.
From February 2016 A2 Key, A2 Key for Schools, B1 Preliminary, B1 Preliminary for Schools and Business Certificates results have also been reported on the Cambridge English Scale.
Exams with results reported using the Cambridge English Scale have improved versions of the Statement of Results, which include:
- Your result - the final grade you obtained for your exam.
- Your overall score - your overall Cambridge English Scale score for the whole exam.
- Your CEFR level - the Common European Framework of Reference level that you achieved.
- Your individual component scores - your Cambridge English Scale score for each of the skills measured by the exam; Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Use of English. With these individual scores you can more easily see how you performed across the exam and which skills you may need to improve on.

Results from pre-2015

This document shows:
- Your result, based on your total score in all three papers
- A graphical display of your performance in each paper (shown against the scale Exceptional – Good – Borderline – Weak)
- Your standardised score out of 100, so you can see exactly how you performed. It has set values for each grade, allowing comparison across multiple sessions of the exam.
You can see an example of a Statement of Results before the introduction of Cambridge English Scale in the following document: Cambridge English: Key Statement of Results (2014).
