sign up for a general English or a general German language examination have the
further option to take a monolingual or a bilingual exam. Special purpose
language exams can be taken from economics in English, French, German, Italian,
Russian, Portuguese and Spanish, while the language selection concerning our

full language range can only be taken in May. For further details consult the exam calendar

Examinees may sign up for complex, oral and written
examinations. If a complex exam is chosen and the examinee fails one part of it
and passes the other, a certificate for the passed examination part (oral or
written) will be issued.
Having passed an exam at the Corvinus Language Examination
Centre, examinees will get a language examination certificate acknowledged by
the Hungarian state. Along with the Hungarian specification, the level
specified in the Common European Framework of Reference (B1 for basic, B2 for
Intermediate and C1 for advanced) is also printed on the certificate.
Regardless of exam type and level, the exam (part) is
considered a pass if the examinee reaches an average result of at least 60%.
Concerning skills (reading comprehension, writing skills, speaking skills, listening
comprehension, and on bilingual examinations, mediation) specified by Govt.
Decree 137/2008. (V. 16) and tested by the respective exam part, a minimum
score of 40% must be reached.
Below that, the exam is considered a fail. For
the language proficiency skill there is no specified minimum.
assessment of examinees' langueage skills is based on a compensation assessment scheme, but only if the parts of a complex examination are taken in the same
exam period. Passing one part of the examination can't compensate for the
results of the other part taken later.
If an examinee manages
to score 40% at each skill (except for language proficiency, for which
there is no minimum set), the exam part with better results can compensate
for the exam part with worse results, unless the average result of the two
exam parts stays below 60%. Otherwise the examinee passes, and a complex
examination certificate will be issued. Example: Written test 55 % +
oral test 65 % = 60 %, complex exam pass mark.
If the average of the
two exam part results doesn't reach the 60% minimum but the examinee
succeeds in reaching 60% at one of the two exam parts – oral or written –
with the 40% minimum met for each skill, a certificate of a passed oral or
written language examination will be issued.
