Proficiency Examination (Nyelvi alapvizsga) in spring 2015
Ryan, Christopher/Dávid Gergely, host: DELP (R301)
3-credit examination; weak prereq: ANG-106E, ANG11-108E
description & set texts
This exam is designed to test candidates’ command of English at B2+ level, as defined in the Council of Europe’s “Common European Framework of Reference” standards. English major students normally take it at the end of their first year of studies, as it is a pre-requisite for most second-year courses. Students with English as their minor may take the exam at any time during their BA programme.

The exam consists of two parts: a written Use of English paper, and an Oral part in which candidates are tested in groups of three. The Use of English paper focuses mainly on grammatical, lexical and discoursal accuracy, and contains 75 questions based on short continuous texts (several questions in each text) or single sentences (one or two questions in each sentence). The oral test requires candidates to speak fluently and accurately, first on their own and then in conversation with other candidates.

In terms of the ELTE Hallgatói Követelményrendszer, ANG-001/ANG-002 is an “A típusú nyelvi alapvizsga”. This means that the two parts are marked separately; in order to pass the whole exam, candidates need to reach the pass-mark in both parts, and the final grade is based on the aggregate of both marks. The exam can be taken only once in each exam period.
