  • The three first parts (Listening, GVR, and Writing) consist of the written section of the examination and they are all administered at the same day. The fourth part, the Speaking Test, is administered before, after, or even at the same day of the written examinations.
  • The format and the content of the test of the examination reflect the general language preparation, the methodology and the teaching material used for the learning of English as a foreign language.
  • Standard American accents are used in the recording for the listening section. Candidates are not exposed to dialects or background noise. Candidates hear only the speakers’ voices and thus they do not risk having their scores unfavorably affected by external factors.
