How is the exam scored?

In the LTE A1-C2 Speaking exam, the overall score and language level are established based on the candidates’ performance in all three parts of the exam. Candidate performance is assessed across five assessment criteria, and the marks awarded for each criterion result in a cumulative score which corresponds to performance at the CEFR levels A1-C2. All candidates receive a certificate stating their overall score and the CEFR level achieved. Candidates whose performance falls below A1 level do not receive a certificate.
