Your exam day minute-by-minute. What to bring, how to prepare.
The year of 2001 was an important date for language teachers, students, schools and exams too. After 20 years of research the Council of Europe published a book called the Common European Framework. For the very first time, the Framework offered a unified system of levels and guidelines across languages. Learning a language was no longer just about how many words to learn, and how much grammar to practice, but much more about real-life, everyday use of English, German, French, Russian…
By the end of 2001 Euroexams had created its new suite of exams using the Framework as the foundation. The new tests reflected the Framework’s practical approach, using nothing but authentic materials in challenging and enjoyable tasks that all reflect real, everyday situations.
The Euroexam, the first suite of exams based directly on the Common European Framework, reflects what students, teachers, and employers expect from language courses and exams today – it tests success in real communication.
A reliable and fair exam is more than just good tests written by international experts. Euroexam’s procedures are fully transparent and secure. All written exam scripts are returned for marking by independent examiners in the UK and Euroexam’s regional centres in the EU. Speaking tests are recorded and transferred electronically for marking by our accredited oral examiners in the UK and Europe. Our team of native English speaking interlocutors and invigilators who supervise the examinations play no role in the marking or assessment process. This makes Euroexams fair, impartial, and secure.
Our mission is to provide reliable and fair exams that not only test students’ ability to communicate, but also give a positive and motivating goal for students and their teachers to work towards. Euroexam’s success is their success: each year tens of thousands of students look forward to the chance to demonstrate their language skills in fair, motivating and challenging exams.
