Established over 150 years ago, Cambridge Assessment owns and manages the University’s three exam boards and carries out leading-edge academic and operational research on assessment in education. We are a not-for-profit organisation.
Our mission is to promote excellence in education. We do this by playing a leading role in developing and delivering educational assessment in over 160 countries around the world. We have a deep-seated belief in the value of education and we work with our stakeholders to ensure that all our assessments support high quality learning.
Our highly regarded research-led and evidence-based approach means our qualifications are recognised by universities, employers and official bodies across the globe.
We have a strong track record in advising governments and education bodies on education reform and engage regularly with policy makers on the education agenda, and how best to provide learners with the knowledge and skills that they need.
We have two overarching areas of expertise - delivering assessment and influencing thinking.
As well as our Assessment Research Division, two of our exam boards are closely involved with the development of Cambridge Mathematics:
