The first three parts are completed in one day, while the speaking part may be take in the period of seven days before or after the other parts.


All candidates are given a report on their English language ability which gives them a band score according to a scale of 0 to 9 – from Non User to Expert User. The report contains five scores, one for each of the modules and an overall score. The report is normally valid for two years.
