How long are my results and certificate valid for?

Information for candidates who have taken a Cambridge English exam

Your Cambridge English exam result/certificate does not have an expiry date*. It shows that on a particular date you demonstrated language skills at a specified level, however language skills are known to diminish over time if not used and maintained.

Individual institutions (such as universities, employers, professional organisations and government bodies) can choose whether or not to accept a certificate that is more than two years old, although many will take into account evidence that you have taken action to maintain or improve your level of English since taking your exam. Please speak to the institution that you wish to apply to if you have any doubts.

Applications for a visa to study or live in a country may also require that you hold an English qualification that was taken within a specified period (within the last two years for example). We strongly advise that you check the regulations for that country carefully before making an application.

If you have any doubts, speak to the institution you are applying to.

*The only exceptions to this are:

  • IELTS - results are valid for two years only.
  • BULATS - we recommend that employers/educational institutions ask for some further proof of a candidate's level of English if the test was taken more than two years previously.
