Designed by English language experts to give a trusted result
Every year, over two million people take international English exams and qualifications with the British Council.
Our test was designed in collaboration with the internationally-renowned Centre for Research of English Language Learning and Assessment (CRELLA) at the University of Bedfordshire, UK.
Scores are linked to the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which allows users to compare results from EnglishScore to those from other assessments (such as IELTS, TOEIC and TOEFL).
We use a number of mechanisms to prevent cheating, giving confidence that the certificate holder is the person who has taken the test and that their score is a fair reflection of their English language abilities.
