Cambridge Exam Preparation

Shafston is one of Australia’s largest providers of preparation programs for the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. Cambridge exams are highly valued by employers in many countries, especially Europe. Shafston offers a very wide range of Cambridge preparation programs including all levels of the main suite exam preparation programs (PET, FCE, CAE and CPE) as well as the main suite of Cambridge Business Certificate (BEC Vantage and Higher) exam preparation programs.
We guarantee to offer every Cambridge program that we advertise and pride ourselves on delivering a first class exam preparation program delivered by well respected Cambridge specialists.
Specialised Cambridge Teachers
Among the specialist teaching staff are a number of Cambridge examiners, who teach on the programs and give individual feedback and advice to students throughout their program.

Exam Success!
Shafston students consistently score highly on Cambridge examinations. Preparation is rigorous. Included in every program is a full day of mock practice exams once every month for all papers.
There are three classes of passing grade available for the main-suite exams: A, B and C, and two classes of failing grade, D and E. All candidates are provided with a Statement of Results which includes a graphical display of the candidate’s performance in each paper. These are shown against the scale Exceptional – Good – Borderline – Weak and indicate the candidate’s relative performance in each paper. Passing candidates are awarded a certificate.
