Candidate results

An electronic copy of your Aptis results will be sent to you via email two (2) days after completing the test.

Please note that this electronic result is final and we will not provide a hardcopy certificate. 

How are the results presented?

The results from Aptis are presented in two ways:

  • Numerical score: A scale of 0 to 50 for each skill tested and a score for the Grammar and Vocabulary component.
  • CEFR level by skill: A CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) level is allocated for each skill tested. Each CEFR band describes the English language competence in a specific skill and is described on the back of the individual report.
  • An overall CEFR level will be awarded if all four skills components are complete. 
  • For more information see our Aptis Scoring document (PDF)
  • All Aptis reports include a unique QR code and a link which provide digital result verification, confirming the authenticity of test results. This feature uses blockchain credentials with the highest level of security, verifying all test reports issued by the British Council.
