Exam dates and deadlines

In the PET exams, all parts of the test usually take place on the same day. For FCE, CAE and CPE the speaking test takes place on the first day and the written and listening papers happen on the second day. The two days are usually in consecutive weeks.

In all cases, the closing entry date is the last date when we can definitely receive an application to take the exam. After the deadline dates, we may be able to accept candidates for that session but it will be necessary to pay a late entry fee of £25.

Exam Preparation Courses

We offer Cambridge exam preparation courses throughout the year to help you achieve the best possible result in your exam. Our 10 week courses typically start in January, April and October/September, and we also run a 4 week intensive course in August - if you book one of these courses, your exam is included in the cost of your course price. If you would like to study for fewer weeks this is possible too, however we would recommend first taking a level test so we can make sure your goals are realistic for the time you have. Find more details and dates for our preparation courses here

In addition to our full time courses, we also offer a part-time evening course for those already living and working in Bristol - see here

 

Listed below are the scheduled exam dates for the year ahead. Choose the level and date which is appropriate for you (you can read more about the different levels on offer here), and click through to register and pay for your place.
