  1. Very very greatful for these exercises, they are a big help, I did not know the READING AND USE OF ENGLISH part of the test was divided into 8 different parts. THANKS.

  2. You guys this tests are a big help, thank you very much…There are some software errors though, for example in some Part 7 of READING AND USE OF ENGLISH you dont have all the options (A-G), sometimes option E is missing. And in the last 3 tests there are some repeated texts or with the wrong promts…other than that this is all very helpful, thanks again 🙂

  3. Hi!!
    thank yoy very much for posting these practice tasts, they helped me a lot to learn some new collocations and vocabulary! Nevertheless, I found a mistake in Test nº8, Part 1 (Reading and Use of English). When I got to number 6/7/8, I just realised that the text doesn’t make any sense, so I decided to look for it on the internet. Your text says:
    So I decided to GO (to go where?!), I was aware of the damage bluntness can do but I’ve learned that true friendship survives on sincerity and a few OBVIOUSLY (wrong!) for a purchaser to put their own HOME truths won’t ruin it (a purchaser to put home truth? what?). I wish I’d known that before!
    Original text –> So I decided to (6) GO ahead. Some people hated me, others were angry, but my real friends valued my honesty. (7) OBVIOUSLY, I was aware of the damage bluntness can do but I’ve learned that true friendship survives on sincerity and a few (8) HOME truths won’t ruin it. I wish I’d known that before!

    Thank you again!
    Svetlana P.

  4. Hello Svetlana,
    Just like before, your input proves to be extremely valuable! I have corrected the test accordingly. In all honesty, I have no idea how the last bit of text got there!

  5. HI!
    thank you for posting these tests, they are very helpful, but I was wondering how hard are they compared to the original Cambridge exams. I have done another sample tests and they seem to be easier, but I love your tests and am very grateful for them 🙂

  6. Hello Magi!
    Glad you like them! As far as my experience goes the tests here are pretty similar difficulty-wise. The official CAE Test I took four years ago was more or less the same. In the future, I plan to analyse which tests seem to be more difficult to visitors and mark them accordingly, then recommend easier or harder tests based on their performance.

  7. Hiya! Thank you for these tests, I’m on my way to CAE, next month I will take exam! Successfully I’m sure! Fingers crossed! 🙂 When I’m working with book I think there’s nothing new but when I’m doing your tests there’s always something new! I’m not sure it is good at this stage but I’m moving forward and this is good I think. Thanks.
