BBS LEC organizes three examination periods per year. The related deadlines and the possible exams therein will be published on its website one year in advance.
BBS LEC's exam systems are open, so anyone who has reached the age of 14 can apply for their bilingual exams. Accordingly, the Examination Center also allows applications from persons with special needs (e.g. disabled people) and non-Hungarian native speakers.
Applying for the exams becomes valid by providing the required information for the exam and by paying the examination fee. The data can be entered online on the relevant website of the Examination Center. It is possible to pay the exam fee by credit card payment or bank transfer. Detailed information regarding the exam fee and payment options can be found here.
Information on how to apply for the exam (how, for what, where,for how long and what information is important) can be found here.
A summary table of all exams announced in the current exam period can be found here. The Examination Center reserves the right not to organize an originally announced examination at an examination center or nationwide in the event of an insufficient number of applicants. In addition, the Center may subsequently announce an accredited examination that was not originally included in the original list.
Candidates will find the exact location and time of the exams (the exam schedule) on their online application interface at the pre-announced time. The Center will not send special written notification by post.
An examination which was originally announced and organized due to a sufficient number of candidates, may be postponed until a certain deadline or may be permanently withdrawn. The rules for postponement and withdrawal can be read here.
Each candidate will receive a brief e-mail informing him / her of the result of their exam (successful or unsuccessful) by the 30th day after the first exam event of the exam period. Detailed exam results can be viewed on the candidates' online application interface. The Examination Center will issue a bilingual language examination certificate for successful examinations within 60 days of the examination event, and will not send a separate written notice of a successful examination. Certificates can be picked up at a time announced in advance in the exam calendar, or will be mailed at that time. The process of issuing the certificate can be sped up if the candidate waives his / her right to review the results on the interface after the announcement of the results. The Examination Center may not issue an official certificate of successful examination until the completion of the certificate due to legal regulations. Other information about the certificate can be read here.
Within 15 calendar days of the announcement of the result, a request for review may be made with reference to the assessment of the examination, an infringement of the law or a numerical error in the calculation of the results. Read more about the review process here.
The Examination Center allows its candidates to view their papers (which is designed to eliminate possible numerical and administrative errors) as well as to provide professional advice on their performance and possible future preparation. Information on viewing and consulting can be found here.
