I could not remember when I was so happy to get a “C” for an exam. I finally received my Certificate of Proficiency in English Exam’s result today and I passed at a grade C. There were four students who took the exam in mid-June 2014 and all of us passed at a grade C. This came as a surprise for me because I was not confident enough to pass this exam. I scored low score in previous exam practice tests.

A little bit about this exam, CPE is the highest level of English – above Advanced level – and by having this certificate you can say that you have proven yourself to be as proficient enough in English – almost the same with native speakers. Eline said that you can teach English with this certificate. Imagining myself as an English teacher? hmmmm over my dead body :D…..

This is my first certificate from Cambridge English, which is a part of University of Cambridge. I will receive the actual certificate in a couple of days and this is the first time in my life I have something related to the University of Cambridge, although through its Cambridge English Language Assessment. Perhaps a first step to get another Cambridge-related diploma?:D

Saya jawab berdasarkan pengalaman saya ya. Saya dulu dapet beasiswa JASSO buat exchange di Tokyo dan setahu saya perguruan tinggi di Indonesia waktu itu (ITB – pertengahan 2005) mengirimkan 5 nama kandidat ke JASSO untuk satu program exchange. JASSO dan Univ di Jepang yg akan memilih kandidat mana yg akan dapat beasiswa. ITB saat itu ada 3 program exchange ke Jepang (skrg setahu saya sudah lebih), saya rasa dua program yg lain mirip2 prosedurnya.

Selain JASSO, ada teman yg dapat Sato Scholarship. Kamu mungkin bisa coba via jalur ini. Link-nya ada di-bawah.
