Advanced Level Certificate in English (ALCE™)

Alce logoThe Advanced Level Certificate in English examination (ALCE™) is a standardized examination for candidates who wish certification at advanced proficiency level in English. The examination has been mapped on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) as reflecting the content and difficulty of C1 level. Thus, the typical candidate for the examination should have a sound knowledge of English at advanced level.

The ALCE™ is developed and scored by Hellenic American University in accordance with the highest international standards of educational measurement. All parts of the examination are written following specific guidelines and test specifications. Items are pre-tested to ensure standardization and validity. Care is taken that the tests are fair and accessible to all examinees.

The ALCE™ tests communicative competence in all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. It also contains sections which specifically test grammar and vocabulary resources. The examination focuses primarily on the educational and occupational domains appropriate for this level, and this is reflected in its content and tasks. Candidates who are successful in the ALCE™ examination obtain a certificate which documents their level of English for educational, occupational, public or personal purposes.
