Cambridge English Proficiency (CPE) Preparation Courses in London

Unique can prepare you to take the Cambridge English Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) exam with tailored personal tuition that will enable you to be ready for the most exacting exam in English language testing.  CPE is the highest level Cambridge English exam that you can take and as such, is quite a challenge.


Test Format

There are four papers in the exam:


Reading and Use of English: 1 hour, 30 minutes

This makes up 40% of the total marks for the exam.  The primary focus for this paper is on your grammatical ability, your ability to structure a sentence and your use of complex and idiomatic language.  


Writing: 1 hour, 30 minutes

In this paper, you should show your ability to produce a number of different items such as a short story, a letter, an article or a report.  This usually takes the form of homework and your personal tutor will be able to check your work and give you feedback.  This is worth 20% of the overall marks.  


Listening: 40 minutes

In this part of the CPE exam, you will be tested on your aural skills with various recordings being played.  You will have to answer a series of questions based on speeches, radio reports and presentations, etc.  This part of the test is worth 20% of the overall marks.  


Speaking: 16 minutes

The speaking test is taken with an examiner and yourself and occasionally with another candidate.  There are tips and tricks that you can do to ensure that you get a high mark.


Course Content

The content of the course will be decided upon by you and your tutor.  For any language exam, you must focus on those areas that you need to focus on.  You need to be away from the distractions of subject areas that are not important and which are wasting your time.  This is eliminated by private one to one tuition.
