Introduction - What is Anglia?

Anglia Examinations has been based in Chichester, England, since 1994. Anglia offers a comprehensive and structured programme of assessing English language competence, from beginner through to full competence as an expert user. This step-by-step approach to testing encourages and motivates students to make clear and effective progress.

Anglia exams measure all four language skills - listening, reading, writing and speaking. There are no minimum age requirements for the exams. The young learner levels are taken by children as young as four years old. The upper levels and Business English exams are taken by students and adults who plan to continue their studies at an English medium university / college or to improve their career prospects.

Anglia Examinations in English currently consist of ten different levels and the Anglia International Business English examinations are available at four levels.

The Proficiency level is listed by UCAS as a qualification which can be accepted by British universities to show international student competence in English language. The AcCEPT Proficiency examination has been designed to incorporate a stronger academic element within its first section.

All levels of the examinations have listening, reading, writing and speaking elements.
