How to review your Cambridge exam

If a candidate believes that their exam result is not fair, they should contact their exam center immediately. Your center can then ask Cambridge English for a  consultation  or an  appeal  . Here we explain more information about both processes.

Request a review of your Cambridge exam, either for a requalification or appeal procedure:
