CEFR and Can do

CEFR - Common European Framework of Reference for Languages-is an internationally recognized benchmark of language ability. The framework uses six levels to describe language ability, from A1 to C2. 'Can Do' statements have been used to describe these levels in terms of real skills with language, such as being able to write a report, or take a telephone message.


All candidates will receive a Statement of Results five to seven weeks after sitting the exam. The results are available on-line from the candidate support website or issued by the centre where the exam was taken. Certificates are issued within three months of sitting the exam.

The Statement of Results gives information about individual paper performance and a new overall score as well as the overall grade. Individual paper performance is not provided for those candidates with grades X or Z which means they were absent from part or all of the examination as well as those whose results are marked as PENDING.

If a school or candidates believe the result to be incorrect, they can request a Results Enquiry which should be submitted through the centre where the test was taken.

Candidates’ answers and other work done by the candidates as part of an examination will not be released to candidates, schools or centres. The Statement of Results for most Cambridge ESOL exams include a score out of 100 for the exam as a whole as well as their grade and the graphical profile of performance in each paper. This gives schools and centres a more accurate picture of the overall performance of their students.
