Who can register?

Anyone over 16 years of age.

How much does it cost?

The registration fee is €100 for students of the University of Valencia and €120 for the rest of candidates and it entitles to one attempt at one level. Nevertheless, if you pass either the oral or the written paper, your mark will be kept for a year. During that time, you can register to retake the failed paper getting a 30% off and you will only need to pass this paper to obtain the certificate. 

University staff can ask for official language tests grants.

Where is it accepted?
