Closure of the Cambridge English Examinations Centre, Bern

The current disruption resulting from the Coronavirus has caused enormous personal, professional and economic difficulties for us all. We at the Cambridge English Examinations Centre, Bern have done our utmost to fulfil obligations to candidates and schools during these past weeks and have carried out all written and oral examinations up to and including Saturday, 14 March 2020.

It is with deep regret that I have to inform you that the Cambridge English Examinations Centre, Bern is ceasing business with immediate effect and will no longer be able to accept any registrations for future examinations.

Over many years we have valued working together with you, your staff and your students. All our efforts have been focussed on providing professional support and services towards the achievement of a successful outcome for candidates in the examinations. We hope you will agree that we have fulfilled these commitments.

We would like to refer you to our partner Centres for Summer registrations.

We will be sending you information regarding refunds for your fees in a separate email during the next few days.

I am enormously grateful for your personal and business collaboration and wish you and your students the very best for the future.

Anne Gruaz

Extended certification

The extended certification works in two ways. A candidate who does especially well in their exam can get credit on a higher level on the CEFR. Likewise, candidates who do not earn a passing grade may still be awarded a certificate for the level they have achieved.
