SEPTEMBER
HOW TO CALCULATE ANNUAL TOTAL AVERAGE
› If a student’s Spring and Fall AGE score is between 59.5 and 69, then
  their total cumulative academic score is considered. This means that
  the total cumulative academic score is averaged with the Spring and
  Fall AGE score. If this average score is 70 or higher, then the student
  passes.

  – The average of the total cumulative academic score of the last 2
    periods before taking AGE exam are counted regardless of the
    student’s success in each level. Therefore, it is important to keep in
    mind that for the students starting the preparatory school at A+
    level and reaching C level in the 4th period, the higher their
    average is in C level, the better chance they have to pass the
    proficiency exam.
HOW TO CALCULATE ANNUAL TOTAL AVERAGE
        - If students complete all periods successfully, the average
of all periods is counted for the AGE exam in June.
      - It is compulsory to count the average of at least 3 periods
for AGE exam in June.
       - The averages of period 3 and period 4 are directly added
to the student’s overall score.

› The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages:
  Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR) is a guideline used to
  describe achievements of learners of foreign languages. It was put
  together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project
  "Language Learning for European Citizenship" between 1989 and
  1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of learning, teaching and
  assessing which applies to all languages in Europe.
› The Common European Framework divides learners into three
  broad levels (A, B and C) each of which is subdivided into two
  groups: A1-A2, B1-B2, C1-C2.
› CEFR Level Assessment (Classroom Activity)
