Cambridge English: Flyers (YLE Flyers)

Cambridge English: Flyers (YLE Flyers) is the third of three Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) tests for children. This test can help your child understand simple written English, communicate in familiar situations, understand and use basic phrases and expression and interact with English speakers who talk slowly and clearly.

Sample Preparation material  

Candidates can prepare for the exam using the material provided here, such as sample papers, and other learning activities.


There is no pass or fail. All children receive an award which shows how many shields they have received. The maximum score is five shields for each part of the test.

A Cambridge English: Flyers award is a great way to:

  • celebrate children’s achievement
  • build their confidence
  • reward their own individual ability

A result of one shield means a child can improve a lot in that skill. Five shields mean that a child did very well in that skill and answered most questions correctly.

Children should be ready to start preparing for the next Cambridge English exam – Cambridge English: Key for Schools and Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools – if they achieve a total of 10 or 11 shields, or above.
