How does the Examagram scoring system work?

The Examagram scoring system

The Examagram score awarded to a candidate is a mark out of 1000 where the higher the score, the more competent their English ability.

In order to standardise results and allow comparison against other systems, the Examagram score can be mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), with the candidate’s score within each band giving an indication as to how close they were to the level above or below. These bands are as follows:

  • CEFR Level: Below an A1 – Examagram score: 0 – 142
  • CEFR Level: A1 Breakthrough or beginner – Examagram Score: 143 – 245
  • CEFR Level: A2 Waystage or elementary – Examagram Score: 246 – 428
  • CEFR Level: B1 Threshold or intermediate – Examagram Score: 429 – 571
  • CEFR Level: B2 Vantage or upper intermediate – Examagram score: 572 – 714
  • CEFR Level: C1 Effective Operational Proficiency or advanced – Examagram Score: 715 – 857
  • CEFR Level: C2 Mastery or proficiency – Examagram Score: 858 – 1000 Candidate section
