The Cambridge University exams are the most popular and acknowledged throughout the world to certify your English level.
Its certifications range from levels A2 to C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and, unlike with other oficial exams, the exam can either be passed or failed, only obtaining the diploma if you reach the minimum percentage mark, which varies according to the level. Another feature that differences these certifications from others is that they do not expire.
The exam consists of several tests (Reading, Use of English, Writing, Listening and Speaking) that help measure your speaking and writing skills.
They are highly accepted among companies that wish to know their workers’ English level and among those college students that need to certify a foreign language to obtain their Degree. Some universities request these certifications as a minimum access requirement for foreign students.
The Test of English as Foreign Language, best known as TOEFL, is an exam that assesses your language skills in the academic field. It is the best option for those students that wish to undertake university studies abroad, especially in the United States, where many Universities request this certification as a minimum access requirement for non-native students.
Unlike the Cambridge exams, TOEFL is valid for 2 years. It consists of 4 tests and there is no passing or failing mark, you simply obtain a mark between 0 and 120.

The International English Language Testing System, best known as IELTS, has two modalities: the IELTS Academic, that certifies your English level for academic institutions, and the IELTS General Training, which is more oriented towards the work sphere.
