Interpreting your exam results

You can view your exam results after entering your exam code and clicking on the “Send” button.

Here, we would like to offer you some help for the precise interpretation of the information that you find on the results page.

Euro language exams have four possible outcomes, regardless of language, level and exam type (general or business). We are going to review these one by one for you below.


Successful complex exam

In this case you successfully fulfilled the requirements of the exam. On the basis of the overall results of your oral and written exam tests, you are entitled to a complex state-accredited certificate, which the Euroexam Centre issues for you automatically.


Successful Oral exam

In this case although you have registered for a complex exam, you only performed satisfactorily in the oral exam part, since your Reading test failed to reach the minimally required 40%. Therefore your complex exam is not successful, but we issue for you a state-accredited certificate for your oral performance.

Thinking it further… If your aim is to pass a complex exam, next time it is enough for you to apply for a written exam. If you succeed in it, the certificate you get and the one you receive for the successful oral exam together will count as a complex certificate.


Successful Written exam

 

In this case although you applied for a complex exam, you only performed satisfactorily in the written exam tests. Therefore your complex exam is not successful, but we issue for you a state-accredited certificate about your written performance.


Unsuccessful exam

In this case the candidate was not able to pass the exam the exam. The candidate did not achieve the pass threshold set in the exam rules.

Two important remarks

Candidates and their teachers often ask how the percentage results of exam tests are calculated from the point scores. As you all know, the maximum number of points in each test is always 25, but this is not identical with the number of individual answers to the questions (which are called items in the testing jargon). The magic number, 25, shows that we give each of the 4 (monolingual) and 5 (bilingual) tests the same weight in the exam scores, in other words, each test is equally important in the overall result.

The partial results and the final result are both calculated very precisely to several decimal points (e.g. 67,55%) during the evaluation of your exam. However, every result finally appears rounded up to a whole number (e.g. 68%) in the announcement of the results and in the certificate.
