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 tests are lengthy and don't allow pauses (without affecting your score or having to start again). In the first place, how is this app any better than just going to an office building somewhere and taking the test there? Lastly, these kind of unhelpful issues should be warned about before starting the test. I suffer from severe anxiety and thought this app would provide a good opportunity to measure my English level without actually having an anxiety attack, but I was definitely wrong.

This app is very helpful. I recommend it for every English learners. But sometimes at the speaking and writing tests I have the problem. I can't listen the speakers and I just can't do the task. I think the problems like this will be improved.

The listening test is weird. You have to read aloud, that's fine. But if you mess up and try again, you don't have enough time because it takes at least 10 seconds to send your response. I believe that the sending shouldn't be a part of the time you have to answer.
