Examiner考官根据他们在考场上所听的来给每 位考生评分。我们没有限额,因此考 官不会按照一定比例来让考生合格或 不合格。

打分时,考官针对评分标准中列出的 考生的质量和技能控制作出评估。考 生不需要满足所有的标准才能通过考 试,因为在某些领域中的薄弱往往会 在其它领域中的强项来平衡。

考官在每个部分从合格分数起加分或 减分,而不是从满分减分或从零分加 分。针对考试中的每项内容,考生需 要达到总满分的三分之二才能合格, 但他们不需要各项内容均通过才能取 得考试整体上的合格。

考试总分为150分。考生达到:

  • 100分是合格;
  • 120分是良好;
  • 130分是优秀。
