After a year of preparation students of the classes 9a and 9b of the Oberstufe Compogna in Thusis successfully completed their Cambridge B1 Preliminary exam! Let’s look at how their exam day went:
Swiss Exams has been working with the Oberstufe Compogna in Tusis for over 10 years and they are great supporter for Cambridge Exams, encouraging their students to make the extra effort for a big reward: the internationally recognised Cambridge Certificate. The picture above shows the article in the local newspaper. Congratulations to the students.

The exam took place on the 14th of May 2021 in Chur organised by Swiss Exams. After the students’ arrival they were led into the exam hall where they took their seat. Before the reading part began the students had to make sure that their cell phones and other electronic devices were switched off.
After the reading part (45 minutes) the students had a short break in which they could relax and get mentally ready for the other parts of the exam.
Next came the writing part which also had a duration of 45 minutes and before heading out for lunch the students completed their listening part. After this intense morning the students had 1.5 h to have lunch and rest before the last part of their Preliminary exam: Speaking.
The speaking part only lasts 10 minutes and is completed in pairs. After completing this last part of the exam, the students were officially through! Following 2 weeks of waiting they received their results: students completed their Cambridge B1 Preliminary exam successfully. Swiss Exams congratulates them!
