UCLES & Trinity Examination classes 

Having a recognised international English language qualification may be the passport to further study or career development for many students and professionals.

Our school offers a wide range of examinations which students can both train and prepare for and take at our centre. The two examination boards we collaborate with are :

Trinity College London has been conducting examinations internationally since the 1880s. Trinity is accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority in the United Kingdom as an independent award-giving body.

The Graded Examinations in Spoken English test candidates' ability in listening and speaking. They are one-to-one oral examinations with a native English-speaking Trinity examiner who travels from the U.K. There are 12 grades altogether which are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference. The exams encourage students to develop and progress by acknowledging each step forward; at every stage of the students' development there is a chance to mark success.

There are four stages with three grades at each stage :

  • Initial (Grades 1-3)
  • Elementary (Grades 4-6)
  • Intermediate (Grades 7-9)
  • Advanced (Grades 10-12)

With 12 grades available, there is a grade to suit every candidate. The assessment is a balance between fluency and accuracy. Examiners are interested in finding out what candidates really can do.
