2016 Exam Discussion

Post by John Montes » Thu Mar 31, 2016 12:57 am

Greetings, students of the online lessons!

The 2016 exam period is approaching, if you're taking the exam for the first time, the process can feel a bit overwhelming. The key is not to leave things until the last minute, but to start preparing early, and that doesn't mean just the actual practicing of the exam piece.

We've started this thread to catalog and link to any useful information regarding the exams to help make the process smoother for you. We'll update this page as new information becomes available, such as exam pieces, possible changes to time table etc.

Please check here often. We will also post notices on the relevant class level current lesson threads when we update this post. You may also post any questions you have regarding the exams in this thread, and they will be answered.

The first thing to do is to read the "Exam section" of the FAQ for lessons which covers the following questions and details about what to do and how to do it.
- How is the final exam conducted and what exactly is tested?
- How do I join the Spanish forum in order to sit the end of year exam?
- I did the exam last year. Do I need to re-register to do this year's exam?
- What is the benefit of the exam? Is it just to give you a way to gauge your own progress?

Then second thing to do is start the process of joining the Spanish forum and joining the 002 usergroup ("002 mensajes colocados") in that forum, as detailed in the FAQ for lessons-Exam section. Don't forget to post the 2 message minimum, and allow up to two days for the Spanish moderators to fully enable your account so that you begin to see your forum postings.

The third thing to do is periodically check the Qualification for 2016 exams page to see which lessons you have been credited or are missing. When you reach exam qualification status you will notice blue text indicating "Qualifies for exam". If you think the listings may have an error or discrepancy please reach out to the Lesson Moderator team (D01, D05 John Montes) (D02, D03, D04 CarlWestman) (Marko Räsänen).

Please allow 1-2 days after posting a lesson submission so that moderators are allowed enough time to review and give credit for submissions.

Fourth, please make sure you are listed as "Qualifies for exam" in blue text in this forum before requesting access to the students group and registering to participate in the final exam in the Spanish forums English mini-forum--as detailed in the FAQ's for lessons. Allow up to two days for the Spanish moderators to acknowledge your request and add you to the student group and officially registering you for the exam in the Spanish forum.

Finally, after completing previously mentioned steps, periodically check this page for updates on which pieces have been selected for the exam for each level (D01, D02, D0X...), more details for submitting the final exam piece, and when to post exam submissions.

Best of luck -- The Lesson Moderator Team

You can do that, but the moderators will make the announcement here in this topic too as soon as we know. The exam piece is announced approximately 4 weeks before the exam date, so in the case of D03 the information should be available in the beginning of May.

Hi Teodora,

You appear to have an account successfully created on the Spanish forum, at least you are listed there as a member. Are you able to log in there and post a message in the English subforum?

I suspect you may be clicking on the "Registrarse" link or button at some point, which is trying to register you again.

You should instead be starting by clicking on the word "Identificarse", which will take you to this page. Enter your username in the first box there, and your password in the second, and then click on the "Identificarse" button just below them (NOT on the "Registrarse" button lower down).

Let me know if that does it.

Andrei, I think your request may have been overlooked. Could you post a new request for exam registration in that thread?
