Keeping in view impressive performance of the institution as a centre, Cambridge English has upgraded the internal centre status to Open Centre.
This change means that now PakTurk International Schools & Colleges is authorized to offer this exam to students and teachers across the country.

It is worth mentioning here that Cambridge English exams are accepted by more than 20,000 organizations around the world. Providing English examinations since 1913, Cambridge English Language Assessment is part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge.
