Highlights:

Listening for CAE and CPE
Here comes the day of your first mock test! It’s not going to be recorded - please try to make time in your schedule to come and sit the test under timed conditions. You will need a pencil and some scrap paper to take notes while listening.
If on the mock exam day you are not on the ball or your physical surrounding is not perfect (e.g. there is some background noise), do come anyways. This will give you a training on psychological aspects of getting ready to succeed in exams.
