{June 28, 2010}   International Exams at School

Today I had a meeting with the Cambridge representative in the area where I live, and we talked about the new “for school” version of the traditional Cambridge examinations.

It’s very interesting the way the exams have been adapted to fit students from different age groups and with a, perhaps, lower command of the language. What I told her was that I felt this would encourage students to sit for the exams without fear of failure (and avoiding private institute owners to charge unbelievable fees in their final exams – because, I think, as parents will be more aware of the prices of international examinations, they will decide which tests their sons and daughters will take). Since 2009, KET and PET for School have been in the market, and – apparently – next year we will also have FCE for Schools.
