How is the exam scored?

In the LTE A1-C2 Writing exam, candidate performance is assessed across four assessment criteria per writing part. 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. A candidate’s overall score is calculated by adding together scores on the two parts of the exam. All candidates receive a certificate stating their overall score and the CEFR level achieved. Candidates whose performance falls below A1 do not receive a certificate.
