Recognising Bodies

Anglia Examinations offers an outstanding suite of fully certificated English language assessments designed to accommodate all ages and levels.

AcCEPT Proficiency (CEFR C1) is the Anglia ESOL International Proficiency level assessment designed specifically for non-native English speakers requiring English for higher education or for academic purposes in order to study at international universities.

AcCEPT Proficiency (CEFR C1) meets the highest standards, not only with regard to the accuracy, integrity and security of test papers, but also to the upholding of strict conditions for policy and procedures of test centres, registration, candidate identity, grading and moderation.

Students successfully completing the AIM Qualifications Level 3 Certificate in ESOL International (Anglia Mastery – CEFR C2) will be awarded UCAS tariff points which can count towards university application tariffs, making the qualification one of the only few of its kind in the UK with UCAS points.

Cooperation with AIM Qualifications and Assessment group (AIM Qualifications) and Ofqual

Anglia Examinations offers a comprehensive and structured 10-step programme of assessing English language competence, from beginner through to near-native speaker level. For the highest four levels, Anglia Examinations has partnered with AIM Qualifications to develop an exciting suite of ESOL International Qualifications.

The Office of Qualifications & Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) are independent of government and report directly to Parliament. Ofqual's responsibilities are to provide confidence in the qualifications they regulate and indicate the knowledge, skills and understanding students have demonstrated.

Ofqual maintain standards and provides confidence in the rigour of qualifications in England including GCSEs, A levels AS levels and vocational and technical qualifications, including AIM Qualifications.

Anglia Exam's four highest levels of English language exams are regulated by Ofqual via our partnership with AIM Qualifications.

  • B1 Intermediate AIM Entry Level Certificate in ESOL International (Entry 3) (B1) (Anglia Intermediate) Ofqual qualification number 601/4946/2
  • B2 Advanced AIM Level 1 Certificate in ESOL International (B2) (Anglia Advanced) Ofqual qualification number 601/4947/4
  • C1 Proficiency AIM Level 2 Certificate in ESOL International (C1) (Anglia Proficiency) Ofqual qualification number 601/4949/8
  • C2 Masters AIM Level 3 Certificate in ESOL International (Anglia Mastery) Ofqual qualification number 601/4948/6

When you see the Ofqual logo endorsing a qualification you can be confident that:

  • Our exams are regulated qualifications
  • Our exams show the actual level of competence a student has achieved
  • Employers and academic institutions can have confidence in our exams


UCAS is a charity based in the UK aimed at helping people make connections with higher education. UCAS provide information, advice and guidance on gaining entry into higher education in the UK.

UCAS points, also referred to as the "UCAS Tariff" are a way of ascribing approximate value to post 16 qualifications in the UK. Each qualification approved by UCAS is given a tariff score and the higher the grade you get, the more UCAS points that are awarded. Many universities base their selection criteria on how many UCAS points an applicant has.

The Anglia Mastery C2 CEFR English Exam has been awarded UCAS tariff points allocated as follows:

Level Attained UCAS Tariff Points
Pass (P) 16 Points
Merit (M) 20 Points
Distinction (D) 24 Points

University Recognition

University Applicants – before considering the Anglia university list please read the information below very carefully.

The list features universities who have either confirmed that they would be happy to consider the applications of students with the AcCEPT Proficiency C1 level for entry to their courses, or have accepted students in the past with this qualification or currently have students who applied using this qualification.

We are constantly in the process of updating this list and welcome any information to help us keep it up-to-date. The list consists only of institutions with which we have had recent contact.

Universities are very large organisations which constantly change and develop, and in most cases they consist of various independent departments. If you have specific institutions you wish to apply for, we recommend that before taking their Anglia Examination you check with them that (Anglia) ESOL International qualifications are acceptable. University admissions officers consider each application individually, and exceptions sometimes occur.

Likewise, even if an institution is not listed below, this does not mean they will not accept the (Anglia) ESOL International Qualifications. It is always worth making a personal approach, or asking your agent to make a personal approach, to a university with your qualification. Universities and specific departments of universities who only take other examinations by custom and habit are often very happy to hear from overseas students with accredited qualifications with which they were previously unfamiliar. In addition, if you or your agent feels that your application would be helped by personal contact from Anglia or with any particular admissions tutor, please contact the Chief Examiner or refer them to Anglia at the address below. We are always happy to help.

Please see our new prospectus for universities here

Anglia has a mapping project for the top six levels. Copies of the examination papers mapped to the standards are available through contacting the Anglia office.


Relation to Other ESOL Tests

Test users frequently ask how the scores from different examinations compare with each other. The varying formats, designs and measurement scales of different examinations make it very difficult to give exact comparisons with any degree of confidence. Such comparisons are difficult to verify both empirically and conceptually. With this in mind, test-users should nonetheless still find the following correlations useful to consider: the candidates who achieve a 6.0 in IELTS would typically receive a PASS grade in AcCEPT Proficiency; the candidates who achieve a 6.5 in IELTS would typically receive a MERIT grade in AcCEPT Proficiency and the candidates who achieve a 7.0 in IELTS would typically receive a DISTINCTION grade in AcCEPT Proficiency.

The figure below presents Anglia ESOL Examinations and other major ESOL examinations’ alignment to CEFR.
