Certificates

In accordance with the linguistic policy of the Agency for French Education Abroad, the French School in Belgrade, provides its students with an opportunity to  take different certified exams during their education. The EFB is responsible for registering students who want to obtain the desired certificates after the families have paid the registration fees, and a teacher accompanies the students on the day of the examination. The students are informed about the structure of the test by their language teachers. Additional preparation may be organized for some exams or it may be part of the language lessons.

These exams are not mandatory for education at EFB, but they may be useful in case of continuing education in other systems, and particularly for higher education in foreign institutions.

These standardised exams aim to validate the students’ language ability. They are designed with reference to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). The difficulty of the tests will depend on the level – A1 to C2 – established by that document. The exams are organized by independent institutions, the EFB’s partners:
