Prove your language skills with a certificate from Busuu and McGraw-Hill Education
In 2015, Busuu and McGraw-Hill Education, one of the largest and most recognized educational publishers in the world, teamed up to provide certification to demonstrate your skills in your language of learning.
The test will determine how well the core topics of Levels A1, A2, B1 or B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) are mastered. If you pass an exam, you will receive an official McGraw-Hill Education certificate for that level.

Final tests for the learning levels
Busuu language experts have completely overhauled the learning level tests so you can better assess your current language level and show your skills and efforts.
Important features of the tests:
The skills are central: each test is divided into three sections – dialogue, speech comprehension and speech application
Vocabulary and Grammar: Each exam focuses on the key vocabulary and grammar topics of each level
The results are graded: Instead of a simple pass or fail, grades are awarded between C and A +
The number of repetitions is limited: we encourage learners to only complete the tests if they are really ready. That’s why every test can only be taken once every fourteen days.
frequently asked Questions
Why should I take a final test?
The test will help you find out if you master the fabric of one level of learning and be ready for the next. Plus, you’ll receive proof of your hard work, proving your language skills at work or impressing your friends on LinkedIn.
In what format is the test certificate provided?
The certificate will be emailed to you in color as a PDF file, so you can print a copy. If you take the test through our app, you can also share your results via LinkedIn.
When should I take a test?
You should take the test if you think you are proficient in all or most of the subject areas of a learning level. For example, if you have already completed A1 or have completed it at Busuu, you will find out with the appropriate test if you are ready for A2. You do not have to complete all the lessons to take the test.
What is determined by the test?
The test will determine how well you master the topics of Levels A1, A2, B1 or B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). If you did less than 70% right, you failed. Then you have to repeat and pass the test to get a grade and a certificate.
The certificate you receive after passing the test does not have the same status as official certificates, such as TOEFL or TOEIC, because the exam is unattended. But it also provides an excellent gauge of your current language skills. It also provides evidence of your knowledge and achievements.
How often can I repeat the test?
You can repeat the test as many times as you want. However, after each test you have to wait two weeks before you can start a new attempt. We want to encourage you to learn for the test and repeat topics. Finally, you should do better next time.
