Results C1 Advanced

C1 Results are reported on the Cambridge English Scale.

You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and the use of English, giving you a clear understanding of your performance. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the test. You will also be awarded a grade and level  of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages  (CEFR).

When will I receive my C1 advanced income statement?

All candidates receive a Statement of Results, and if you are successful in the exam, you will also receive a certificate.

Your Results Statement is posted online, approximately four to six weeks after the exam for paper-based exams, and two to three weeks after the exam for computer-based exams. The fastest way to get your results is to sign up for the free online results service.

The certificate is sent to your test center approximately three weeks after the results are available. Your test center then sends it to you.

  • If you took a paper exam, your certificate will be sent to your center seven to nine weeks after your exam date.
  • If you took a computer exam, your certificate will be sent to your center five to six weeks after the exam date.
