Important information about how we assess the students wishing to enrol on any exam preparation course

Our track record of successful results attained by students preparing for an exam with us means that we do not advise students to start any exam preparation course unless they have enough time to adequately prepare for it and the required entry level to ensure that enough progress is made during the course. We normally do not accept students on exam preparation courses for less than 12 weeks, unless they have studied on similar courses before coming to us. During the interview, we explain our assessment and advise you on the best course of action if we reckon that joining a General English Course or a combination of General English and Exam preparation course is advisable. You are of course still welcome to apply for the exam if you decide that your personal circumstances do not allow you to wait but you will need to submit your application directly to an exam centre. Support with the application will always be given, regardless and we will always make sure you receive adequate preparation until your exam.



Below are the prices of all of our English courses (*please add the correct administration fee as stated*).

How will the school decide whether I'm ready to take my exam or not?

Queen's English Language School proactively set homework and assessments to complete at home and through our Virtual Learning Environment (you will receive your login once your course has started). Every week, Cambridge English exam students will be given a MOCK exam paper to complete under test conditions. Once you're consistently achieving your target grades in the MOCK exam papers and contributing well in class, our Principal will let you know when you are ready to take your respective Cambridge English exam.

Cambridge English Key (KET) exam preparation course

The Cambridge English Key (KET) exam preparation course is to prepare students for an A2 level qualification that proves your ability to use English to communicate in simple situations.

The exam tests all four English language skills: Reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Cambridge English Preliminary (PET) exam preparation course

The Cambridge English Preliminary (PET) exam preparation course is designed to help you obtain a B1 Preliminary qualification.

By passing the PET exam, it shows that you have mastered the basics of the English language and that you now have the capability to use it for every day, practical use.

The Cambridge English Preliminary exam (PET) is usually taken before starting a B2 First English language course.


Cambridge First Certificate is a rigorous and thorough test of English at Level B2. It covers all four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – and includes a fifth element focusing on the candidate’s understanding of the structure of the language.

Upon finishing this course we aim for students to have reached the required level to successfully sit for the FCE Cambridge Test. Students at the level are expected to show ability to:

  • Understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning.

  • Express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions.

  • Use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.

  • Contribute effectively and keep up with a casual conversation, coping with abstract expressions.

  • Contribute to presentations/seminars

  • Advise or talk about more complex issues.

  • Read quickly enough to cope with and academic course.

  • Produce clear, well-structured, detailed text on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors, and cohesive devices.

Cambridge CAE is a rigorous and thorough test of English at Level C1. It covers all four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking – and includes a fifth element focusing on the candidate’s understanding of the structure of the language.

Upon finishing this course, we aim for students to have reached the level required to successfully sit for the exam which means they will have learnt to:

  • Understand with ease virtually everything heard or read.

  • Summarise information from different spoken and written sources, reconstructing arguments and accounts in a coherent presentation.

  • Express him/herself spontaneously, very fluently and precisely, differentiating finer shades of meaning even in more complex situations.


The Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) exam preparation course is designed to help you pass the Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) exam.

The Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) qualification is currently the highest Cambridge English qualification available and shows that you've mastered English to a level considered similar to a native speaker.

By passing the Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) exam and obtaining a CPE qualification, you'll have proven that you can communicate with the fluency and skill that only a highly competent English speaker could relate to.

Most students who study towards gaining the Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) qualification are studying for work in a very senior professional or academic environment such as a PhD programme or for postgraduate study.

There are two types of IELTS tests you can prepare for with us:
