Language exam certificates
The Examination Centre uses a compensation assessment scheme: if an
examinee manages to score 40% at each exam part for each skill (except for
language proficiency, for which there is no minimum set), the exam part with
better results compensates 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.
Compensation only applies if the parts of a complex
examination are taken in the same exam period. Passing one part of the
examination (oral or written) can't compensate for the results of the other part
The results of the exam will be disclosed 30
calendar days after the exam (menu: VIEWING RESULTS). You can check out
your results by typing in your personal code number.
Certificates are only
to be collected in person at the respective test centre or at the language
examination centre. There is no postage of certificates. Examinees who passed
the exams they signed up for – according to the results found online on the day
of disclosure (if they signed up for a complex exam: complex exam passed, if
they signed up for a written exam: written exam passed, if they signed up for
an oral exam: oral exam passed) - will be informed via e-mail about details
concerning the collection of their certificates three weeks from the day the
results were disclosed online.
Examinees who signed up
for a complex exam but only succeeded in passing the oral OR the written part
(and thus eligible to receive a certificate of an oral or a written language
exam) will be informed about details concerning the collection of their
certificates three weeks counted from the end of the review period.
If an examinee had signed up for a complex
examination and ended up failing an exam part and passing an other, the one
they passed will be considered a successful oral or written examination, and a
certificate will be issued.
When combined, oral and written
language examination certificates are equivalent to a complex certificate
without any regard to the time elapsed between the two examinations and to the
test centres they were taken. Part-examination certificates of the same
language can be combined.
Lost language examination certificates
can only be replaced by a so-called
administrative certificate. Unfortunately we are not authorised to issue a
certificate of the same exam twice. An administrative certificate, which
contains the data of the lost language examination certificate including its
serial number and registration number, can be requested at the Accreditation
Centre for Foreign Language Examinations (Accreditation Centre for Foreign
Language Examinations customer service, 1122 Budapest, Maros u. 19-21., Phone:
The Accreditation Centre for Foreign
Language Examinations (NYAK) will reprint a certificate in the sole case
of an error in the examinee's name. Typing errors in birthplaces, birth dates,
missing middle names can only be corrected by requesting an administrative
certificate, which is to be enclosed to the language examination certificate.
Not even a name change makes anyone eligible for a reprint. Further information
