A total of 15 measures have been assessed.
Which exam is easier, Trinity or Cambridge?
B1: Trinity ISE I is considerably easier than Cambridge PET
B2: Trinity ISE II is slightly easier than Cambridge FCE
C1: Trinity ISE III is easier than Cambridge CAE
What does this mean?
Both exams are widely accepted. Cambridge is more established and well-known but Trinity is growing fast, especially in Spain. Trinity is one of two accepted exams for a UK visa.
Although Cambridge is a lot more grammatically rigorous, and a lot more demanding in general, at the end of the day, both qualifications are worth the same. Any interviewer for a job would trust a brief conversation over a piece of paper.
In other words, the qualification may open doors, actual language ability is a lot more important.
