Cambridge English Language Assessment

The Cambridge English Language Assessment (formerly known as ESOL) is a secondary school English Language proficiency certification examination scheme designed to test 4 areas of language skills: Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.

Each skill is enhanced according to age and proficiency levels. Examinations are designed to test specific language needs of the child and are recognized by 20,000 organizations worldwide especially when the child applies for tertiary education or for a job.

The programs under the banner of Cambridge English Language Assessment are categorized as follows:

Key English Test (KET)
Preliminary English Test (PET)
First Certificate Examination (FCE)
Cambridge Advanced English (CAE)
Cambridge Proficiency English (CPE)

Key English Test (KET)

KET teaches students English communication in simple situations. It is a logical next step after YLE and offers a good starting point for older children to further their skills at reading, writing, speaking and listening. The exam gives students the confidence to go on to study for higher skill requirements, such as PET.

Preliminary English Test (PET)

PET takes students to yet higher levels of writing, reading, speaking and listening. It introduces the student to business like writing and development of vocabulary for speaking and writing on more advanced topics. It is the next logical step in a student’s language learning journey to the higher-level FCE.

First Certificate Examination (FCE)

FCE allows the student to explore into longer write ups and speaking expectations. It is an in-depth, high-level qualification that employers and universities are looking for. It is also a great way to prepare for higher-level exams such as CAE.

Cambridge Advanced English (CAE)

More than 6,000 educational institutions, businesses and government departments worldwide accept CAE as proof of high-level achievement in English Language proficiency. Students develop the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening to enhance their study skills, work skills and living skills in English-speaking countries. This exam is the next logical step to the higher CPE.

Cambridge Proficiency English (CPE)

CPE proves that students have mastered English to an exceptional level and can communicate with the fluency and sophistication of a highly competent native speaker of the English Language. It recognizes the level of English proficiency needed to study or work in a very senior professional or academic environment, as in a postgraduate or PhD program.


Cambridge Young Learners English

Young Learners English (YLE) comprises a progressive series of fun filled activity based English language tests geared towards introducing primary and lower secondary students to daily usage of English. Cambridge YLE is an excellent system designed for confidence building in speaking English and allocation of rewards for standards achieved. There is no Pass or Fail marks. All children get an award which indicates the “number of shields” they have received. YLE is accessible on PC, Laptop and Tablet.

The programs outlined under YLE are as follows:

FUN Learning for Starters
FUN Learning for Movers
FUN Learning for Flyers


Leadership & Public Speaking

Leadership and effective communication go hand-in-hand. One cannot exist without the other. Recognizing this, and mindful of the fact that many teenagers are engrossed in academic study and are often more comfortable communicating electronically than face to face, secondary level students at Cambridge Asia automatically become members of the Gavel Club.

The Gavel Club is a Toastmasters Club for secondary students. Public speaking is an essential component in our curriculum and an integral part of our learning culture, because it builds effective listening, expression, and communication skills that help guide young people through their teenage years and into professionals. Participants learn to overcome nervousness when speaking before an audience, organize and present ideas logically and convincingly, listen carefully to others’ ideas, participate in and lead group discussions or meetings, and offer advice to help others improve their speaking and leadership skills.

To become future leaders, many events in teenagers’ lives require the successful use of interpersonal skills, in order to become effective individuals. Leadership and communications skills are important not only for maintaining healthy personal relationships in schools, community and family and for achieving academic goals in middle and high school, college and university; they are also essential for surviving and thriving in today’s competitive market and business environment.
