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:

Hi! I really like this app. However, I am trying to get the certficate, it ia now saying that there is an error. Also I am going back to Home and it is now saying Error and try again later. I uninstalled and installed it again but still to no avail. Aside from these issues, I have no problem with the app!

This app is the best. At first my score was elementary then i practiced hard and after 2 month my level increased up to intermediate. I believe that this is the most real application. But i'm trying to do speaking test and all starting parts were good but camera part isn't working. Can you give me solution to this

I like this app, my learning process has become more easier and it tackles in many areas that I can't reach just by myself!! The motivation is so high so much that I don't like skipping the tests!! Thanks to British Council for being there and directing me in all areas of my English learning 🌺❤️
