The Linguaskill (Bulats) test results are issued in the form of a results certificate. The results are issued immediately for the written and oral comprehension (reading and listening) sections, and paper copies will be handed out by the organiser of the test. You will receive the results of the oral and written expression (speaking and writing) sections within 5 to 7 days.
The Linguaskill (Bulats) test is adaptive (meaning that the exam does not assess a specific language level, but gives you your level), and scores are marked on a scale of 1 to 180, corresponding to CEFR levels (A1 to C2)
Displayed on the results certificate are:
- A final score
- A score for each competency: written and oral comprehension and written and oral expression
The test targets Linguaskill (Bulats) vocabulary: 75% of the content relates to the professional world
Hence, regularly recurring vocabulary is used from such subjects as:
- Sales transactions
- Products and services
- General professional environment
- Entertaining business clients
- Business travel
- Training and personal development
From January 2017, the Linguaskill (Bulats) exam will no longer be available in a paper version, and will only be issued online. This allows the test to adapt automatically to your language level. As the candidate progresses through the test, the system selects the next questions according to the quality of the answer to the preceding question, therefore becoming easier or harder until a coherent and reliable skill level can be obtained.
