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:

I tired it out of curiosity. Actually it's pretty good and smooth. Of course there are a few things that can be improved. I wish I could see the numbers of questions in each sections because it'll help the user to allocate the timing. In this way, one can either rush or take time. Additionally, I wish there was a detailed breakdown for each competency section rather than an overall Level Grade. It would have been more useful if each section has number of incorrect, correct answers and %, etc.

First of all, the test is definitely well compiled and trusted. Second, the interface is good and you don't need much time to used to it. People of respective age would like it. Third, timing can't be paused so be aware of waiting your attention to anything else but the test. And now the bad things. The app some times crush the account so you need to restart is and everything work good, but still it's annoying. Payment with double conversion, it's ok but the final price could be higher.

The app being provided free of cost can be considered as one of the most well organised and comprehensive English test, but the only downside of the app would be that there is error with downloading the certificate. A quick fix of the payment error would be highly appreciated.
