The CPE results are in

Just a quick post to conclude the CPE posts here, here and here. I passed the exam with flying colours and an official grade A. Yay!

I don’t have any individual points for the tasks, but there’s a neat little graph to illustrate the results. According to that Listening was the best, closely followed by Use of English, Reading, Speaking and Writing. Predictably that second essay didn’t quite measure up and despite feeling pretty confident going into the writing task, it ended up scoring the lowest.

There are three pass grades for the CPE, Grade C indicates a pass, Grade B a good achievement and Grade A a very strong performance according to the handy little chart. So yay!
