Hi guys, I'd like to take a test soon, and up to now the only test I knew of is the one Cambridge offers. I used to follow Cambridge classes a couple years ago, and back then we were preparing for either the CAE or CPE (I forgot which one). I recently found out about TOEFL and IELTS and how companies and universities accept either/or exam. Which exam should I try out if I take into consideration that I want to show my true level of English. I don't just want to do an exam, pass it and only have it be eligible for 2 years or so... I'm ok with redoing it every 5/6 years though :)
What are your thoughts?
Ebu, I guess the most reliable validity of English proficieny in general is TOEFL-iBT since in this test, you have to hold comprehensive understanding in English and profound vocabulary to pass it.
Hello Ebu..In my opinion I think that CPE Test is the best, comparing it with IELTS because it is C2 Level. You dont have to retake the exam. But it all depends on your needs . You can see the differents levels of IELTS in comparison to Cambridge in this link http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/exams/cefr/.
I am training for CPE and the practice tests in the same web I sent you are great!..
Hope its useful the information..
