Candidates who pass
If you passed both parts of the exam, you will receive:

  • an ISE certificate showing Pass, Merit or Distinction for each skill: reading, writing, speaking and listening
  • a diagnostic profile report for each skill showing how you performed - this shows you where to develop your skills in the future

Candidates who fail

If you fail either or both parts of the exam, you will receive:

  • a letter confirming that you did not achieve a pass grade in all 4 parts of the exam and therefore you do not receive a certificate
  • a diagnostic profile report for each skill showing how you performed - this identifies areas for improvement 

To improve your skills use the information in the report to identify relevant practice activities in our skills development tables below. When you are ready, you can book to re-take your test.
