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:

Very unhappy about the speaking test : I did this one for fun but the result is quite upsetting. I spent 5 months on Vancouver Island, did 1 language test (IELTS style) at the end and got a C1+ for the overall score. Here, I got a B2... I mean, I'm not even surprised. We don't really have time to prepare, the questions aren't that clear (the notes displayed while you answer are a bit different from the actual question). Also, I know I don't have a 100% British pronunciation but a B2...

Hello, sorry to hear this and thank you for your feedback. In any assessment, there will be some variation in scores over repeated tests, but please email and we can take a look at your scores.

The app is overall great, but there are two problems, - First is, I didn't get one thing, if I repeat the test, will my marks be lowered? Or Would I be degraded for attempting the test over and over again? - Second is, I don't know what my mistakes are. If my mistakes are appointed, it will be great so that I will be able to improve my scores. It is highly requested to clarify the discussed points.

You can take the test as many times as you like - there is a limit of twice in 24 hours. Your score is not affected by how many times you take the test. It is likely, over repeated test sittings, that your scores will lie within a certain CEFR range, but each test is scored on its own. We do not provide answers to ensure the integrity of the test.

Firstly, I wanna to say greatful to all. This application is really convenient for me. Since the time that I know this application onwards, I started to test my level. Gradually, I know how to answer the questions. My level is gradually high. So, later,I always test my level. Thank all of you!!
