What is the pass mark and what grades are awarded?

Paper-Based version: all candidates take the same Paper-Based test, regardless of their language proficiency.
Computed-Based version: the questions adapt uniquely to the level of each candidate.

There is no ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ mark, as all candidates receive a grade on a scale of 0 to 100.
No matter which testing version the candidates choose, they receive a certificate from A1 to C2 level depending on their performance, provided their score is 10 or above.
Please note that if a candidate’s score is between 0-9, the provisional results after finishing the Computer-Based test will show a score of 0.

Does the Test Centre get involved in the assessment?

The Test Centres do not get involved in the assessment. Marking is carried out by LanguageCert.

How is the overall LanguageCert USAL esPro Listening & Reading test score calculated?
The overall score of the LanguageCert USAL esPro Listening & Reading test is not simply an average of the individual scores of each test section (Listening, Reading). It is calculated based on a specific scoring algorithm that identifies the candidate’s language competence, as each test section carries a different weight. For example, if the Listening score is 50 and the Reading score is 60, the overall score will not necessarily be 55.
