CAE At a glance – what’s new? 

Here are the main changes to the Cambridge English: Advanced exam that start from January 2015:

  • The exam will be 45 minutes shorter. But it still covers all the same language skills and tests at the same level as the current version.
  • The exam will have four papers, not five.
  • The Reading and Use of English papers are now combined into a single paper that looks at language knowledge and reading skills.
  • There will be some new tasks and tests in the Reading and Use of English, Writing and Speaking papers.
