Candidates have direct access to their results during the results release period via the Cambridge English Language Assessment Online Results Service. Each candidate will receive a letter on the exam day, notifying them when the results release period will be and their Login ID and Secret Number. Please note that candidates must retain the letter until they have received their results.
If you have passed your exam, your certificate will be sent to you approximately two months after your results are released. If you registered through your school or a language centre, your certificate will be sent to your school. If you registered as an individual candidate, your certificate will be sent to your postal address.

CEFR: Common European Framework of Reference
From January 2016, B1 Preliminary and B1 Preliminary for Schools results will be reported on the new Cambridge English Scale. You will receive a separate score for each of the components (reading, writing, listening and speaking), giving you a clear understanding of your performance. These scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam.
