What are Cambridge English Exams?
The Cambridge English assessment offers the world’s leading range of qualifications for learners of English. Over 5 million Cambridge English exams are taken each year in more than 130 countries and Malaysia just so happens to be one of them.
One of the core reasons we promote this English exam at SOLS is due to its association with one of the oldest universities on the planet which is full to the brim with talent of the highest calibre; The University of Cambridge. We believe that their exams will provide our students with pure educational excellence and support. Not only do we believe this, we have witnessed it from those who have graduated from our authorised Cambridge English centre at our HQ in Kuala Lumpur.
The leading features of the Cambridge English exams are based on realistic circumstances and daily tasks so our learners can use their languages skills in real-life situations. The exam tests all four language skills- speaking, listening, reading and writing and encourages the learner to gain confidence in all areas. We want each candidate to be treated fairly, regardless of their ethnic background, linguistic background or gender.
Unlike other English exams which have an expiry date, the Cambridge English exam lasts FOREVER. This means you don’t have to keep on going back, taking test after test and spending even more money just so your certifications are up to date. All you have to do is go through our super easy 4-step SOLS application process and be 4-steps closer to having that Cambridge English Certificate proudly placed next to your CV.
The four key steps for the SOLS Cambridge English exam are as follows:
Have a look at what we have on offer at SOLS and select your ideal exam. We recommend a handful of options so that we can cater for all types of candidates. For instance, there is BEC, a Business English test designed for working adults. This exam helps working adults boost their chances of employability and allows them to certify their English language skills. We also cater for high school students with the KET and PET exams, as well as primary school children with the YLE exam.

At SOLS, we have a number of Community Centres spread across Malaysia. Therefore, you can easily apply and pay for your exam at your nearest centre where one of our Community Development Officers will be on hand to assist you. They will simply collect your information and fees so that that your application will be processed by our CE team at SOLS 24/7.
For the third step, all you need to do is to start studying for the exam. Whilst you are busy practicing your English, we will apply for your exam and get your application authorized by the official Cambridge Examination system.
Once you have been approved and your exam has been booked, it will be time to take the exam! Don’t worry though, you will have plenty of time to practice and our Community Development Officers will be there to answer any questions you have about the exam beforehand. You will travel to the SOLS 24/7 English Exam Centre which is located in our KL headquarters and we will be there, ready and waiting, to guide you through the process.
After the exam, and of course the successful result, you shall be handed the Cambridge certification and you will become an official member of the internationally recognized Cambridge English graduate group.
So once you have worked hard and earned the certification, what happens next? What can the certificate do for you?
Well, the one of the advantages of having it is it will make you seriously stand out from the crowd.
We all know how tough the job market in Malaysia can be these days; therefore, this certificate makes you a little more unique and much more noticeable. A Cambridge qualification on your CV shows the employer that you are willing to dedicate your free time towards improving your English and it also shows them that you are able to use English professionally with an advanced level of understanding.

Another obvious advantage is your confidence whilst using the English language will dramatically improve. Not only will your family and friends notice this change but also the public. In fact, if you’re a student wanting to enter a popular university but you fear you don’t have enough to offer, this certification will give you the right type of recognition. For those who are familiar with the Cambridge English exam and its perks, you will know that 99% of the world’s top 100 universities recognize the Cambridge CAE and CPE for university study. This is yet another door opening for you -just because you took the time out to study and used your initiative to take the exam.
Furthermore, the Cambridge English exams are actually FUN to prepare for, so it may not even feel like you are pushing yourself to study. We all know that there is an overshadowing pressure to prepare, especially before an exam. However, it doesn’t have to be a burden to your daily routine. Many who have taken this exam before have commented on how they felt extremely motivated to learn and to practice their English before the test took place. Our team at SOLS 24/7 also agree that the exams are worthwhile and enjoyable, so enjoyable in fact that you actually forget you’re studying!
Overall, we make your life easier here at SOLS 24/7 as the application process is simple and we are here to help you. We do not expect you to go through it alone. We understand that learning another language is much easier said than done, but we really do believe in the benefits of Cambridge English and find its curriculum to be intellectually stimulating and a positive process. It is the most sought after English exam and will continue to encourage our communities for many years to come. If you want to stand out from the crowd and earn a Cambridge English certification of your own, feel free to get in contact with us on our website and we will be there to welcome you on your journey to improving your linguistic confidence!
