Updates to CELPIP Score Reports and Scoring Chart

We are excited to announce updates to the CELPIP Score Report, as well as the CELPIP Score Chart. These changes are built to ensure all of our valued test takers can use their scores as needed for immigration and professional designation purposes, and include:

  • Score Report Update – Changes include the addition of an average score, as well as our updated address and logo in the footer.


    • Average Score – The Average Score feature is only for CELPIP-General score reports, and does not apply to CELPIP-General LS score reports.
    • Please note that the Average Score is not equivalent to any Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level. The Average Score is the average value of the four component scores of the test, and it is not relevant for IRCC purposes.
  • Score Chart Update – The “M” score will be replaced in the CELPIP-General and CELPIP-General LS score charts with the 0-2 score, further aligning CELPIP scores with the CLB standards.

When I took CELPIP, I found it was like speaking English in real life. You speak every day with your boss and with your friends, and the CELPIP Test represents those every-day, real-life language situations.

I had taken other English language proficiency before, and CELPIP was more relatable to me. All of the questions were situations I was familiar with from daily life, and were like conversations I had experienced personally.
