    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    The final exam will be based on reading and listening comprehension exercises and writing tasks along the lines of those used by BEC and IELTS. Examples will be available on the Aulaweb.

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    You can obtain eligibility, mandatory for the first year within your study plan, by passing a test, in preparation for which you can choose to attend the course L-LIN/12 English Language B2 proposed by the course itself. You will obtain an eligibility judgment.

    The eligibility will be recognized automatically if you have:

    • a first-level language degree (with English as the primary language of study or with at least two ssd L-LIN tests per floor)
    • a certificate of linguistic competence provided by recognized international certifying authorities (Cambridge, Oxford, TOEFL, IELTS) at level B2 or above,
    • or a B2 level already attained during your previous three-year degree program.

    If you meet one of the three requirements above, you can send the required evidence to the course's instructor and request instant eligibility verification. Since certificates can only be used once during a student's career, recognition is only possible if the certificate given for the exemption hasn't been used for other things (like to earn "other" credits).
