How are the written exams scored?

In the LTE A1-B1 exam, the overall score and language level are established based on candidates’ performance in Listening and Reading.

Scores for each of the two parts of the exam are equally weighted and calculated on a 0-100 scale which is fully aligned to the CEFR levels. A candidate’s overall score is the mean score achieved in the two parts of the exam.

All candidates receive a certificate stating their scores per skill and their overall score. A CEFR level from A1-B1 is also stated in the certificate based on the overall score achieved. Only candidates whose performance falls below A1 level (less than 10 points) do not receive a certificate.
