B2 First (formerly known as ‘FCE’) allows you to prove to your university or employer that you have a minimum level of B2 (Upper-intermediate) English. C1 Advanced (formerly known as ‘CAE’) allows you to prove a C1 (Advanced) level of English. Both exams are popular around the world, and Speak Up London can help you get the score you need.

Need a certificate of English for work? Then the B2 First or C1 Advanced is what you need.

A Cambridge English qualification proves you have the language skills to live and work independently in an English-speaking country or study on courses taught in English.

The cost of the exam is approximately £160, depending on the examination centre you choose.

There may be an extra fee of around £15 if you don’t book your exam by the deadline. There are many examination centers around London where you can take the exam, you can find more details about dates and prices here:


Cambridge Exams Course Outlines

On average a unit from the course book is covered in a week. Your teacher will send you a provisional timetable for the week via email before your Tuesday lesson, so you have an idea of what parts of the unit will be covered and when.

Homework is set every evening, including some writing. Evening courses also use course books, but cover a unit in about 2 weeks.
