英国教育 British Council School Exams

Cambridge Assessment International Education (or Cambridge International) is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 -19 year olds.

For more information please visit the Cambridge International Official Website.

Private candidates may enter for Cambridge IGCSE, O Level and International AS and A Level exams through British Council China.

*Cambridge International was formerly known as Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), while in November 2017 it decided to be renamed as Cambridge Assessment International Education to demonstrate its focus on helping schools improve the whole education they provide for their students. In Support of Cambridge International's rebranding campaign, the British Council is in the process of replacing "CIE" with "Cambridge International" in our correspondence. During this process, it is possible that both terms will appear simultaneously at different stages of our communications. In this context, both terms should be regarded as equivalent to each other, whether they are used to refer to the institution, different qualifications or exams.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I register for the Cambridge International exams at different test centres?

Within the same exam series, candidates are allowed to register for exams of different subjects at different centres, but not allowed to register for exams of the same subject at different centres. Please also note that if you register for exams at different centres within the same exam series, it may lead to problems such as failure to rearrange timetable clash or to accurately carry forward results from this session. Thus, registering for all exams at one test centre is highly recommended.

 2.  What is “carry forward” for Cambridge International exam results?

Only results of Cambridge International AS Level exams can be carried forward. Candidates who have obtained an AS Level exam result may choose to carry it forward while registering for A2 (or A) Level exams so as to get a full A Level exam result.

Candidates can only choose to carry forward the AS Level exam results obtained in the previous two exam series*, if any. 

For example, while registering the A2 (or A) Level exams in May/June 2021 exam series, candidates can only carry forward the AS Level exam results obtained in Oct/Nov 2020 exam series or May/June 2020 exam series. Candidates will need to provide the accurate centre and candidate number for the exam results they wish to carry forward. 

* According to the regulation of Cambridge International, AS Level marks can be carried forward to a full A Level twice within a 13-month period.

3.  Exam Timetable Clash

With the same exam series, there may be different scenarios of exam timetable clash:

  • For timetable clash between multiple subjects of Cambridge International exams registered at our centre, we will make re-arrangement accordingly. Candidates should refer to the Confirmation Letter for the final timetable. 
  • If there is any timetable clash between two exams, one of them will be rescheduled for a different time on the same date. Candidates sitting these two exams will be under full centre supervision between exams, during which time they will not be permitted to use mobile phones nor any other electronic devices or communicate with the other candidates.
  • We are unable to make any rearrangement for timetable clash between Cambridge International exams registered at our centre and other exams (e.g. Pearson Edexcel). Candidates should avoid any timetable clash before registering for exams.

4.  How soon can I receive the outcome of my enquiry about result?

Enquiries about Results will be addressed in the order they are received by Cambridge International, who will communicate the outcome of an enquiry within 30 days of receiving it.
