Language exam certificates

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 taken later.

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.

Collecting a certificate

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: 374-2133; ).

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 available at
