If you achieve a B or C grade in your exam, you will be awarded the A2 Key certificate at Level A2.

If your performance is below Level A2, but falls within Level A1, we will recognise your achievement with a Cambridge English certificate stating that you demonstrated ability at A1 level.
If you want a university, employer or other organisation to verify your result, you must provide them with the information on your Statement of Results and two additional pieces of information:
