The exam for obtaining the DELEs (A1, A1 Young Learners, A2, B1, A2/B1 Young Learners, B2, C1 and C2) consists of different tests: reading comprehension, written expression, listening comprehension and oral expression. The grade "no apto" (unsatisfactory) in one of the sections will imply the candidate's failure in the entire exam. All parts should be retaken at a future date.
