celta pass rateCELTA pass rates differ depending on the centre, but in general the following is true:

  • 67% of candidates get a pass grade
  • 20% of candidates get a pass B grade
  • 5% of candidates get a pass A grade
  • 5% of candidates fail
  • 3% of candidates drop out

The application process is designed to identify and reject applicants who are clearly not suitable for the CELTA course. This keeps pass rates high and guarantees a decent level of student in each class. It’s harsh but fair, both to fellow CELTA trainees and to future English language students.
