Award of Excellence from Cambridge English Assessment
June 4, 2019
We are very proud to announce that due to the Bell Language Centre’s consistently fantastic results in the Cambridge Young Learners, Key English Test and Preliminary Tests Assumption College English Program has been awarded a certificate of excellence and recognition as an official Cambridge Preparation Centre by Cambridge English Assessment.
Coming from one of the world leaders in education, this is a very prestigious award and demonstrates the high standards of teaching within both the Bell Language Centre and ACEP generally.
The percentage of students gaining 5 out of 5 shields in the Starters exam speaking section went up to a 100% pass rate this year, a rise of 4% from last year’s great result. In the Movers exam the results for students receiving 5 out of 5 shields in the listening part went up by 16% to 78%.
Likewise, there was a marked improvement in the Flyers speaking, with 100% of students gaining 5 shields, a 12% increase in relation to last year’s results. There was also a 10% improvement in the reading and writing section, with 44% of students receiving the top marks.
Our Secondary students also performed fantastically. With the number of candidates sitting the KET exam in 2019 four times higher than last year. All 32 students passed, including 14 with a distinction, 14 with a merit, and 3 with a pass. This is a fantastic set of results and really demonstrates the quality of the students and teachers.
Overall, we can be very pleased with these sets of results. We are particularly proud to see the students’ reading and writing improving as the Bell Language Centre teachers have been working very hard to develop our courses to support these skills. It is clear that our teaching is having a very positive impact on our students’ English language achievement and we will continue to extend this success into the new academic year.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teachers for their hard work and our students for their dedication to their studies.
