The Assessments

The Assessments and Preperation Sessions

To gain the Certificate, students will be expected to make an oral presentation (50% of the final mark) and sit a written test (50% of the final mark), which includes three tasks.

The next written test will be held at universities across Wales on 10 May 2017, with the oral presentations taking place between December and the end of March 2017, on days determined by the Language Skills tutor of your organisation. The WJEC is responsible for the assessments and they will be held at your university.

To gain the Certificate, you must pass the oral task and written test. 

The College organises a series of workshops and preparation sessions prior to the assessments at every university where students wish to apply for the Certificate. The aim of these sessions is to offer support to you as you prepare for the different aspects of the examination and oral assessment. For further information about the workshops and preparation sessions at individual universities, please contact your university’s Branch Officer.

As well as face-to-face sessions with experienced tutors, there is also a collection of on-line learning resources to help you prepare and revise for the oral task and written examination. The collection includes interactive activities and paper activities as well as guides and video clips to help you prepare for the oral task.
