Both of these pieces of information can be found on your Confirmation of Entry, which you receive when you register for the exam.
They can then verify your result by logging in to https://verification.cambridgeesolonline.org
If you are unhappy with the result of your exam and you wish to query your results, please discuss this with us. If you are still unhappy, we can submit a Results Enquiry to Cambridge on your behalf.
There are two stages to this process:
Cambridge English will not show or give access to candidates' completed exam scripts.
The Results Enquiry must be submitted by the exam centre on your behalf and we will guide you through the process. There is a charge for each stage, which will be refunded should the enquiry result in a change in grade. Please note that if there is a change in the result but not a change in grade the payment will not be reimbursed. (Grade = A, B, C, Pass, Pass with Merit, Pass with Distinction). Please contact us for information about the costs and time-scales for a Results Enquiry.
Further information regarding Results Enquiries and Appeals can be found here.
Please note that your grade could go down as well as up as a result of a Results Enquiry.
There are deadlines for requesting Results Enquiries, so you will need to contact your centre as soon as possible after receiving your results.
