Finding and verifying a candidate's results
There are two ways for a candidate to share their results with you:
Firstly, they can verify online
- Candidates can login to the Candidate Results Website and choose to share them with your organisation. New candidates will always appear in bold.
- Guidance for candidates on how to share their result can be found here.
A candidate may also choose to verify offline
- Candidates can share their Statement of Results Reference Number (Exam Reference Number) and you can find their information this way.
Searching for a candidate
You can search for a candidate using the following options -
Candidate Name: You can search First name, Surname, or a combination of both
Candidate Date of Birth: Select a date from the calendar or enter using the format YY-MM-DD
Candidate ID Number: The Candidate ID Number can be found on the candidate's Confirmation of Entry document
Exam Name: A full list of Exam names can be found here
Exam Place of Entry: The city where the candidate took the exam
Exam Centre Name: The full name of the centre where the candidate took their exam
Candidate Email Address: The email address the candidate used to register on the Candidates Results Online website
Date of Exam: Select a date from the calendar or enter using the format YY-MM-DD
Exam Reference Number: The Exam Reference Number can be found in the top right corner of a candidate's Statement of Results. You can use the Exam Reference Number to find any candidate's result -- even if those results have not been shared.
After locating your chosen candidate you can click through to view their result details, including:
- Overall candidate result on the Cambridge English Scale

You can easily download a Statement of Results (pdf) or data file (xlsx/csv) for multiple candidates. To do this, select one or more candidates using the tick boxes and then click the arrow next to the Download Options box, and choose your file format -
If you choose Data File, you can use the default template, which will include all available candidate details, or you can also set up your own templates. To do this, navigate to the Downloads section and select Create New Template.
Choose a name for your new template and the data that you want to appear on the exported file:
The template 'Name and Grade only' will now appear as an option when you download a data file.
You can visit the Download History section if you need to download the file again.

To add another user, the Primary User should login to the service, navigate to Your Organisation and then the Users tab:

The Primary User is able to add, edit, or delete admin users. If you need to change your Primary User, please contact the Global Recognition Team at email@example.com.
Editing your organisation details
You can edit your organisation details by clicking on the Your Organisation tab
And then clicking the button.
Only the Primary User can edit organisation details. If you need to change the Primary User for your organisation, please contact the Global Recognition Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Editing your recognised Exams and Tests
By selecting Your Organisation and then Recognised Exams and Tests you will find a list of all Cambridge English exams and tests that your organisation accepts and/or uses.
The Primary User can edit this list at any time by selecting or deselecting the blue check-boxes next to the exam name.
Please note that the list includes our multi-level tests and teaching qualifications which cannot currently be verified on this service. You can currently verify all Cambridge English Qualifications.
