8 Steps To Passing B2 First: FCE Cambridge
If you’ve completed all of the video courses above, then you’ve made a great start on your journey to passing the FCE Cambridge B2 First Certificate.
But your journey is not over yet and in the video below I will explain why.
I will also explain where and how to book your exam and give you loads of useful extra resources to continue your FCE preparation.
So, if you’ve watched the video above, you will see there are several steps you need to take before exam day. Since making this video, I’ve slightly reordered these steps:
1. Learn the format of the exam (new addition). If you’ve finished my courses above, you’ve done this already!
2. Learn a technique for every part of the exam. If you’ve completed the courses above, you’ve already done this step!
3. Practise using these techniques. Practice, practise practise! There are some free practice tests here.
4. Measure your progress. You need to average 60% across all the exam papers to pass. BEWARE many of my students have told me the exam is more difficult than the practice exercises they completed in coursebooks. That’s why I recommend my students to be getting 70% or higher before entering the exam.
5. Identify and focus on your weakest areas of the exam.
6. Book your exam: Find an exam centre.
7. Confirm your exam details. If you haven’t received confirmation from your exam centre, call them and make sure they have your details.
8. Plan your exam day. You want to make this day as stress free as possible.
