Metrica (Cambridge English Test Portal) will be unavailable for scheduled maintenance on 17th July 2019 - 08:00 to 14:00 (GMT).
What is improving?
We are changing the technology used to deliver the Speaking test from Adobe Flash to HTML5. This change is in reaction to Adobe’s decision to end extended support for Adobe Flash in 2020.
Following this change, it will be required that Speaking Tests are taken using HTML5 compatible browsers.
NOTE: Internet Explorer 11 and older versions of IE are not fully HTML5 compliant and will therefore no longer be supported for Metrica Tests.
In order to ensure no disruption of our Speaking Tests it is important that preparations are undertaken early. We recommend that if you or your clients are still using Internet Explorer 11 (or older) to instead use the most recent versions of the following browsers:
Other improvements to the performance of the site are also being added, but the front end functionality of the site will not change.
