Exams and Certificates


We offer language exams to the university community and to anyone aged 16 or more who wishes to certify their level of proficiency in a language. Our level certificates are university certificates, issued by the UAB Language Service and recognised by all Catalan universities, the Catalan Government (Generalitat) and many companies and organisations. They are valid for obtaining credits at the UAB, and as proof of having the required B2 level in a third language, for universities in Catalonia.

Reserving times for the different parts of the exam 
Information about the reservation period is provided at the moment of registration to reserve times for the different parts of the exam. If a time is not reserved for all parts of the exam through the UAB Idiomes website, it is assumed that the candidate relinquishes the right to take the exam. On making the reservation candidates are informed of the rooms where the exams will take place.
Exam candidates with special needs 
UAB Languages Barcelona will attempt to adapt the exams to meet the particular needs of candidates with disabilities. Candidates should therefore express these needs when enrolling. A UAB Idiomes Barcelona representative will then get in contact and arrange for the Student Disability Service (PIUNE) or another specialist service to report on the modifications that need to be made.

Exam results
The results will be posted on 2 October. Students can check their results on our website or at the school, where teachers can clarify any doubts.
Certificates with the CertAcles seal of quality are issued automatically within a maximum of 30 working days. Other certificates can be requested here when the grades have been posted, and are issued within approximately 7 working days.

Exam reviews
Candidates are entitled to an exam review. Additionally, candidates can be given an explanation of how each part of the exam operates, the scoring criteria and procedures, and the criteria for passing the exam. Information about the exam review period is provided when the grades are posted.

Reviews period: 2 to 6 October 2020. 

Appeals are resolved by an appeals board within a maximum of three weeks.
