Exams preparation at the Flexilearning Centre
This section is for those students who would like to attend a course to prepare for an English language exam.
At the Flexilearning Centre we offer part-time preparation classes that will provide you with the English skills and self-confidence to pass your exams.
Whether you need a certificate for personal reasons, to access higher education or for immigration, we are here to help you, support you and make sure you pass.
At the Flexilearning Centre you can prepare for several tests and exams. Some are assessed internally, meaning you sit the exam with us and collect your certificate from us. For others, you will need to take the exams at an external exam centre.
After you complete your preparation classes, we will help you book the exam in one of the UKVI, SELT secured test centres.
