Preparation courses

We run preparation courses throughout the year. The courses are scheduled to coach students preparing for a particular examination session, but those who are taking the same exam at a different time are also welcome to join us.

Our preparation courses are intensive sessions focused closely on developing the required exam technique. Students are given an overview of the test as a whole as well as advice and hands-on practice in how best to handle the tasks in each section of the exam. Our students have a high pass rate, with many achieving merits and distinctions in their examinations.

The Academy has been involved in teaching languages for many decades and has specialized in English for well over 30 years. Our preparation course teachers have many years' experience of teaching and administering Cambridge exams.
