Mock First Certificate exam 2020
This weekend about 80 of our students have tested their level of English by taking our Mock FCE exam. This year we ran 8 different sessions over 2 days in both our Cerdanyola and our Ripollet academy.
The First certificate exam is an official exam organised by Cambridge to prove that you have a B2 level. It is the most internationally recognised exam for this level partly because of its history but largely because of how demanding it is. Over the course of 4 hours students have to complete 4 sections testing their abilities in speaking, reading, listening and understanding of the grammatical structures of the language. Passing this exam allows students to enrol in certain University courses, enrol on study abroad programs such as the Erasmus program or other grants, like the one offered by the Fundación Amancio Ortega, which has been granted to two of our students for the course 2020-2021.It also makes their CV more appealing to potential employees and shows a future employee that they can operate in an all English environment.
We carry out the First certificate mock exam now in February to give our students practice for the real exam and an idea of how ready they are to sit for the official FCE exam at the end of the English courses in June.
