BULATS test results are presented in a clear and easy-to-understand test report form which can be produced for individuals or groups.
The test report form shows:
- an overall score
- a score for each language skill – Reading and Listening, Speaking and Writing.
Results are provided immediately and can be printed on BULATS test report paper in English, French, German or Spanish.
There is no ‘pass’ mark – BULATS scores are on a scale of 1–100.
The front of the test result form gives the BULATS scores and the ALTE and CEFR levels.
|BULATS score||Level description||ALTE level||CEFR level|
For Speaking and Writing, candidates are also given +, - or = to show whether they are high, middle, or low within the band.
On the back of the test report form is a summary of Can Do statements aligned with the ALTE or CEFR levels. These are functional/situational statements that describe what a candidate would be expected to do at a specific ALTE or CEFR level in the language they are being tested in. For example, in the Reading and Listening test a candidate who receives an ALTE/CEFR level of 3/B2 is expected to be able to understand most reports and non-routine letters, with dictionary help.
