As announced in this February 2006 edition of Cambridge First magazine, it is now possible for students to know their exam results on the web:
“Candidates taking Main Suite (KET, PET, FCE, CAE and CPE) or BEC (Preliminary, Vantage and Higher) exams can now access their results as soon as they are released, using a secure web-based service.
With results available from on the release date, candidates can immediately find out how they have done, wherever they are in the world. This means that candidates studying away from home, on holiday, or far from their exam centre no longer have to wait for results posted from the centre.”
It is important to note that many Cambridge ESOL authorised centres in the world have yet to register to gain access to this service. You should have received notice of this together with the release date with your exam citation.
Here is the URL to access your exam results. Please copy & paste in your browser. (See*Note)
Bear in mind that the whole world wants to know their results as soon as they are released, so the page is bound to be overcrowded. A little patience will do.
Once you access the site, you will have to register
- Enter your ID number and secret number (given by your exam centre).
- Next enter your e-mail address and password that you have to create.
- Check the ‘submit' button
You will then go to the login screen
- Enter your ID number again and the password you have created
- Your result will be on the homepage
- Click the Statement of Result button to see how you have done in each paper
If you want, you can print it to show your family while you wait for the official certificates to arrive.
Next essential steps...
- You might as well jump for joy at the good news.
- Text or email all of your friends and/or enemies
- Come back to the fceblog and let the world know how you did!
(In case the emotion obliterates our URL from your mind, you can enter “fceblog” in Google).
