Why is the chart interesting?
In 2017, Cambridge Assessment delivered paper-based assessments to over 170 jurisdictions. The United Kingdom was the country with the largest number of exams taken with 4.2 million papers shipped, followed closely by India (3.7 million) and China (3.4 million). Spain, Singapore, Pakistan and Italy all received over one million exam papers. Other jurisdictions received around 90,000 exam papers on average.
Cambridge Assessment provides paper-based exams in every single Eastern European country; around 90% of jurisdictions in South-eastern, Southern, Western and Eastern Asia, Western and Southern Europe; and more than 60% in Central Asia, Americas, Africa and Northern Europe. We also work in Australia and New Zealand but less often with smaller islands in the Oceania territory. Our exams reach some of the most remote locations in the world, including St Helena and Tristan da Cunha Islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as Tonga Islands in Polynesia. You can be a 'Cambridge' student no matter where in the world you live.
