* The written part of the exam takes place at TANDEM on a Friday at 2 pm, the oral one is to follow on the next day, the Saturday, in the morning.


* The written section takes, excluding the introduction, approx. 200 minutes (plus a break of 20 minutes); the oral section takes about 16 to 24 minutes (plus 20 minutes preparation) and is completed in groups (2 -3 examinees).


 * You may collect your result here approx. 6–8 weeks later - please check our website (see below) to find out whether they have already arrived.
