I'm not sure if this is the right place to post a question like the following (and if not, I'd be happy to be redirected to a better one, maybe still on StackExchange), but since I have no other ideas, I'll ask anyway:
I've recently taken the CAE (Cambridge English Advanced, or C1 level) exam, being awarded grade A with an overall score of 205 on the Cambridge English Scale, which corresponds to CEFR C2 level.
My question is: can I write on my CV that I achieved C2 level or not?
INFO: The front page of my certificate states:
Cambridge English Level 3 Certificate in ESOL International (Advanced)*
This is to certify that NAME SURNAME has been awarded Grade A in the Certificate in Advanced English
Performance at Grade A demonstrates an ability at Level 3* and Council of Europe Level C2
Overall Score 205
*This level refers to the UK National Qualifications Framework
On the back:
Results are reported using scores on the Cambridge English Scale and certificates are awarded to candidates who achieve the following grades:
Grade A - CEFR Level C2 (score 200-210)
Grade B - CEFR Level C1 (score 193-199)
Grade C - CEFR Level C1 (score 180-192)
Candidates who have achieved a score between 200 and 210 (Grade A) have demonstrated ability at CEFR Level C2. Candidates who have not achieved a passing grade, but score between 160 and 179, receive a certificate stating they demonstrated ability at CEFR Level B2.
Asking to a couple of friends and to the manager of the English school where I took the test I got opposing views on the subject. Can you enlighten me?
For the time being my choice is to state this on my CV:
Certified C2 level, Cambridge English C1 Advanced qualification (Dec. 2018) Cambridge English Scale score: 205
