C1 Cambridge Advanced exam preparation
Maximise your chances of passing the C1 Advanced Cambridge exam!
Taught by Cambridge speaking examiners and invigilators, this short intensive course will give you essential hints and tips to ensure that you are well prepared for the Cambridge advanced exam.
Passing the Cambridge Advanced exam is often necessary to study courses in English at University. Unlike the IELTS and TOEFL exams, which only last for two years, a Cambridge C1 Advanced certificate lasts for a lifetime.
Each of the five sessions of the course focuses on a specific exam part:
- Session 1 Writing
- Session 2 Reading and Use of English
- Session 3 Listening
- Session 4 Speaking
- Session 5 Review and exam practicalities
You will have the opportunity to practice your writing by answering three previous writing exam questions for which you will receive detailed feedback from your teachers. This will ensure you are ready for the writing exam and will also give your teacher an insight into any grammatical problems you may need help with.
You should expect 2-4 hours of preparation each week, which includes the written assignments.
On this course, you will complete unit 1-5 in the Cambridge Compact Advanced book, which is full of authentic exam tasks plus exercises that are designed to maximise your performance in the actual exam.
The book includes access to an online exam TestBank, which contains four full past exam papers to give you the opportunity to practice at home through self-study.
Note! This course requires a confirmed start level of C1. To find your current level, please take our free online test here: cambridgeinstitute.dk/en/test.

- Find practical information about each lesson
- Communicate with your teacher and fellow students
