BULATS results are available immediately and candidates receive an analytical profile of their language skills, which is easily understood. The test assesses candidates across the six levels of the ALTE Framework, i.e. the same test is used for all candidates irrelevent of their level. (0-5 of the ALTE Framework corresponds to the Council of Europe Framework levels A1-C2.)
All candidates receive an analytical profile of results which includes:
· Candidate’s overall score
· A score for each section of the test (Listening, Reading and Grammar/Vocabulary)
· A description of what a candidate with a certain language level is normally capable of doing (“Can Do” statements).
