Why choose the FCE Preparation Programme?

The FCE exam is part of a suite of general English examinations produced by Cambridge English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). Within the five levels, FCE is at level B2 in the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference of Languages (CEFR).

The FCE exam is widely recognised in commerce and industry and can be a stepping stone to CAE preparation (C1 level) or may facilitate university entry in Australia.
