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.

To improve the customer experience, the British Council Global Examinations Service will upgrade the customer enquiry service.  From now on, for enquires regarding Cambridge International exam, please contact:

National service hotline: +86 (0) 10-58103306
