The Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP), publisher of the test and organization which administers and certifies the TEF exam, has decided to make changes to the structure of the certification. Here are the essential details you need to know:

  • Transition period: You will have until December 10, 2023 to take the exam based on your current preparations. After this date, you will have to take the new version of the exam.
  • Preparation update: From the end of October 2023, you will find preparation for the new version of the exam on the PrepMyFuture platform, with updated resources to prepare effectively.
  • Simplification of the exam: The new version of the TEF exam presents several significant improvements.
    The types of questions have been simplified, making it easier to understand what is expected of you. The question formats are more conventional, making it easier to decipher the instructions, allowing you to concentrate more on the language itself.

These changes have been designed to make the exam more accessible and less stressful for candidates, while ensuring a fair and accurate assessment of your French skills. We highly recommend you to consider this information when planning your exam.
