We develop and deliver a range of assessments, qualifications and tests, for learners of all ages across the full range of subjects, which are used and respected by educational establishments around the world.
Our principles for designing, administering and evaluating assessments are captured in The Cambridge Approach.
Research and evaluation plays a vital role in continually measuring and monitoring the reliability and validity of our assessments offered through our three exam boards.
OCR (Oxford Cambridge and RSA) is one of the UK’s leading and most respected regulated awarding bodies. OCR offers a wide range of qualifications to students aged 14 – 19. These include AS/A Levels and GCSEs plus a comprehensive vocational suite of qualifications with our Level 1/2 Cambridge Nationals and Level 2/3 Cambridge Technicals in subject such as IT, Business, Sport, Health and Social Care and Performing Arts.
Each year more than three million students gain OCR qualifications, which are offered by 13,000 centres including schools, sixth form colleges, FE colleges and training providers.
Cambridge International Examinations is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 to 19 year olds. Cambridge qualifications are created with an international audience in mind, making them interesting, valuable and relevant for students around the world. These qualifications, which include Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge Pre-U, are recognised by universities, education providers and employers in more than 9,000 schools in over 160 countries.
Our international exam board also works in partnership with ministries of education, qualifications authorities and examination and assessment boards around the world. In some countries such as Singapore Cambridge examinations are the state qualification for students in secondary school. In other parts of the world such as Botswana, Namibia and Swaziland, we work with governments to reform education systems, and help to localise examinations by training officials, teachers, markers and examiners in curriculum development and assessment.
Cambridge English exams are the world's leading certificates for English language learners. Over 3.5 million people in 130 countries sit them every year.
Cambridge English qualifications are recognised and supported by universities, employers, government agencies, immigration authorities and professional bodies in 130 countries.
Cambridge English is also famous for its high quality Teaching Awards, which are recognised internationally. These include the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), which is the best known and most widely taken initial English language teaching qualification in the world.
We have also been providing research-led and evidence based solutions for major higher education institutions for over 20 years. Our Admissions Testing Service team specialises in the development, administration and validation of admissions tests on behalf of a number of universities.
