With the heavy load of school subjects at secondary and vocational schools, commercial schools, gymnasiums, and higher education institutions, it can be an additional burden to have to prepare for the Cambridge English Exams. This becomes a problem for students and teachers as the time is not available in the regular English lessons to cover what would be very important to know for a successful exam result.
Our success story kicked off when a secondary school (Kantonschule) approached us, seeking additional support for their students who were struggling to advance their skills on their journey towards a Cambridge English certificate.
In 2016, we drafted a pilot Cambridge English exam support programme for this school. It would help their English students to prepare for exam levels their school was unable to offer. By participating in our Cambridge English preparation programme, all students who wanted to take the Cambridge English exam were able to do so, even if their English levels were below or above the ones that the school was preparing them for. The pilot project has now become our new exam preparation programme, Swiss Exams Academy.
Students enrolled in this preparation programme for Cambridge B2 First and C1 Advanced. Thanks to this additional support we provided, nearly 90% of them achieved their desired exam level. This was clear proof that Swiss Exams Academy could make a real difference and help students and teachers save time, energy, and stress while achieving their desired certification.
The Swiss Exams Academy is a support programme for the successful completion of the Cambridge English exam at various levels. The course supports exam takers in their further development of the English language alongside their schooling, as they are prepared for the Cambridge English exam in a targeted and individual way.
We asked this very question to Paul Needham, a Cambridge English expert who helped us to build this exam preparation programme.
Our programme has been specifically designed for students attending a public or private secondary school (Sek I and II) or tertiary institutions in Switzerland to complement their studies. It is ideal for students who;
The online classes are led by Cambridge English exam experts and prepare students for the Cambridge English exams. An oral exam is conducted as part of the course so that particiapnts are then ready to pass the exam.
