The Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF), designed by the CIEP (Centre international d’études pédagogiques) and accredited by the French Ministry of Education, is a French language proficiency test for non-native speakers of French who wish to evaluate and have their level of proficiency certified for professional, academic or personal reasons.
In general, the TCF grades and ranks candidates at one of the six levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1 or C2) on a scale defined by the Council of Europe (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). TCF grade results are reliable measurements for determining proficiency.
Each candidate is provided with a certificate stating their test results within two month of the test date, and which is valid for 2 years.
Please consider the time period necessary to receive the certificate (around 2 months) if you want to apply for a school or immigration process.
Once received in our premises, we will send you a notification to come pick up your official test result, upon presentation of an official ID. Documents are only kept one calendar month.
If you will not be able to come pick it up, we offer a shipping service at $25. We can only send the official documents via certified mail. Please pay for shipping at the time of exam registration if you would like this service.
