English exams for visa 189

Hi everyone.

I took a cambridge examen named Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) exam and received the results in march 2015, which certifies that I have been awarded Grade B, with an Overall Score of 218. Does anyone know if this document is valid for certifying a Superior English (20 points) in order to obtain a 189 Skilled independent visa application?

And also i have another question. Have the Department of Border Protection and Immigration ever accepted this Cambridge exam "Certificate of Proficiency in English" (CPE)? Particularly, in any period of time (may-august) during 2015? or did they never accepted that exam?

Thank you for your help!!
