My score explained

Candidates are graded on their performance in the test according to the grading criteria as well as the percentage they receive in each section. Each section of the test has a different pass criteria and rate according to the standards required for that their rank/role in the merchant navy. The results from the five sections then produce an overall grade and percentage which is equivalent to levels based on the CEFR (Common European Framework of References for Languages).

The grading/marking system is fair and consistent. It has been approved by a number of accrediting and awarding bodies including Edexcel. It is expected that candidates who successfully pass the test will receive an Edexcel certificate. This certificate will then be considered valid proof of candidates’ language abilities and will be seen as a necessary vocational qualification. All test takers and/or their institutions will be issued with the Test Report Form which clearly summaries the test results.
