At regular intervals all examinations conducted by the University of Cambridge are adapted to the needs of the time and face stringent tests of validity and quality control. The most recent revision for FCE was in 1996. From December 2008 revised FCE and CAE examinations will come into force. In order to give teachers and trainers detailed help in adapting to the new requirements, we are holding a special seminar here in Hamburg on Saturday, 3 November under the direction of Heather Daldry. All interested parties will receive a separate invitation in due course.
