The FCE is a great test of your English. It is a strong Intermediate level. Even though it is a general English test, it is often used by companies in Europe as proof of basic English ability.

Your age is not important (many high school students do this test), but you English will need to be good in ALL areas to pass.

Do the test. It is a great way to improve your English.

I've just read your message and thought that I could share the experience with you. Today I've just passed the FCE exam. It really tests your level of english, so if I were you I would spend a lot of time preparing for it. But don't worry, it's not as horrible as it may seem. First of all I should mention that there is a slight regularity. If the first paper is very difficult, the second must be easy. In my case, rading and writing were quit difficult; use of english was medium; listening and speaking were easy. For example, in the first part of writing 3 tipes of letters were combined (thanking, apology and making arrangments) while most gaps of the second part of listening contained 1 word and the tape was easily undarstood. So get ready and just
GOOD LUCK!!!

Hi
I sat for the CAE exam this march, which is one step further than FCE, I think..
Here's an excellent website to share your experiences and ask questions Wink
www.flo-joe.co.uk you only have to look for the forum site, it's on the students site I think..
it helped me very much indeed!!
Good luck, cu, Sarah

hi,

i found a really good webpage with useful information about FCE. There you will also find language certificates for other languages. Moreover you can search in 27 languages for a language school worldwide.
check this site out: http://www.language-learning.net or http://www.coursefinders.com.
hope it will be helpful for you

HI!
I'm doing a preparing course for FCE...
I've already done a "simulate" and I thought it very dificult. You have to know a lot of things about grammar...

I think FCE is a important test and the preparing coure is good 'cause I know a lot of "grammar things"...

No idea. I would like to know what it is too. I have never heard of this exam anywhere. So what exactly is this exam about? Is this some kind of exam similar to the IELTS? Please help me understand these guys.
