Passing criteria

The passing criteria

A candidate passes the test if he/she obtains at least half the possible marks in the oral production test. An insufficient score can be compensated by the mark in the listening comprehension test.

SO you must pass both the language test at A2 in oral expression and B1 in comprehension. However, a compensation mechanism has been introduced in April 2017, allowing balance for a lower score in oral expression with a higher score in comprehension, for example.

What does this concrete mean:

The result will be worked out as an average across both elements of the test. for example: Candidates will pass provided the average result is 50% or above. So if you have 40% at the oral test you need to score 60% at the listening test. But if you have 50% at the oral test you have already passed the Sproochentest.
