About the English test and certficate

The EnglishScore test is delivered on a mobile phone, so it requires different security measures and rules.

We use security features such as face monitoring technology through your smartphone’s selfie camera. You must be alone in a quiet place with your whole face clearly in the camera during the test.

These rules help give you and organisations confidence that your results are accurate and reliable.

To take the test and purchase a certificate, you will need to turn on your test security.

Once the test is complete, EnglishScore awards you with an internationally recognised CEFR level from A2 to C1 and a more detailed score between 0 and 599 aligned to the CEFR framework. This is a recognised global standard for describing language levels. You can use your CEFR score to compare results with tests such as IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL.

The British Council EnglishScore Professional Certificate is recognised by leading employers and education institutions around the world.

You can use a Professional Certificate to help advance your career, including applying for a job or to enhance your CV.

EnglishScore is also available for businesses, universities and colleges that are looking to conduct English tests at scale. Learn more here:

The test itself is well made, clear and interesting. And the disappointing part is that after the test the application was not able to submit the results. I waited over an hour, but the only thing I could see was "Test complete. Submitting your answers...". My internet connection is not that bad, one hour should be enough even to upload hd video of the whole test, but I got no result. At least it would be nice to have some progress bar in this app to understand that data upload is still moving.

I absolutely love this app and wholeheartedly recommend it to others. I do have a small suggestion, if feasible. It would be fantastic if the app could incorporate test formats similar to those found in the IELTS exam, such as the four test formats. Definitely, you guys need to fix the glitch, causing the issue of the speaking test. Even after recording, the answer on both tries still goes as an error. I finished the exam without a single answer, & It's very frustrating 😑 😒.

The app was working pretty good at the beginning, I took the speaking test and the other tests without problems. But then, the second time I tried to take the speaking test, when I tapped the button to record myself, it appeared a message saying "record has crashed" and after that, I couldn't record anything because the button became frozen. This situation has happened several times I tried to take this test. So I hope you can solve it.
