For children & teenagers: B2 First for schools

B2 First for Schools is a Cambridge Assessment English exam which gives students the confidence to use their English in the real world.

A B2 First for Schools qualification shows that a student has the language skills they need to communicate in an English-speaking environment.

It’s also a great way to prepare for higher-level exams such as C1 Advanced.

B2 First for Schools is targeted at the same CEFR level as B2 First but with content aimed at school-age learners rather than adults.

A B2 First for Schools qualification shows that students can:

  • communicate effectively face to face, expressing opinions and presenting arguments
  • write clear, detailed English, expressing opinions and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different points of view
  • follow the news
  • write letters, reports, stories and lots of other types of text.
