+ What’s C2 Proficiency (CPE)?

C2 Proficiency, formerly known as Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE), is one of our Cambridge English Qualifications. It is our highest-level qualification – proof that you are a highly competent speaker of English.

+ How do I fill in the answer sheet correctly?

You should use a pencil and not a pen. For Part 1 mark ONE letter for each question. In Parts 2, 3 and 4 write your answer clearly in capital letters and in Parts 2 and 3 write one letter in each box. If you make a mistake you can use an eraser and rub it out.

+ Do I have to pass each paper in order to pass the whole examination?

No. Your overall performance is calculated by averaging the scores you achieve in Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Use of English. The weighting of each of the four skills and Use of English is equal.

+ Are marks deducted for incorrect answers?

No, they are not. All marking is positive in the sense that you will get marks for your correct answers and nothing if the answer is incorrect.

+ If I write two possible answers to a question, how are they marked?

You must write one answer for each question. If you write more than one answer, you will not be given any marks.
