The A1 Movers certificate celebrates children’s achievement, builds their confidence and rewards their ability in the use of the English language.

There is no pass or fail score in the results of A1 Movers. All children receive a certificate which shows how well they performed in each part of the test by the number of shields they have received, out of a maximum of five.

A result of one shield means a child can improve in that skill while five shields mean that most of the questions were answered correctly. Candidates who receive 4 or 5 shields in each skill are ready to start preparing for the next Cambridge English exam, A2 Flyers.

The back of the certificate shows how results align to the CEFR. The following factsheet can be used as a guide to help teachers and candidates understand how Cambridge English scale works. This information is better applied when using official Cambridge English practice tests.
