Exam Format and Grading
The telc B1 exam consists of a written section and an oral section. The written section is 2.5 hours in duration and contains reading, language elements, listening comprehension, and written expression tasks. The oral exam is 15 minutes long (after a preparation phase of 20 minutes) and will take place either on the same day as the written exam or on a separate day.
A sample exam offered by telc gives examinees a detailed impression.
When a minimum of 60% of the possible maximum number of points in both the written and oral sections are achieved, the exam is deemed passed.
