In case two students have the same number of points, the essay, which is of an eliminatory character, is reviewed. In case two or more students have the same number of points on the test and the essay, a conversation is organized through our online platform. The final round test consists of four parts: listening, reading comprehension, an essay, and conversation. Students are tested at one level higher than in the first round. Details of the final test will be published later and sent to the coordinators, teachers and professors whose students compete in the finals.

Learning materials, which contain tests from last year’s competitions and can serve as guidelines in preparing students, will be available on our site. Students also can also find professional help on our website, which could facilitate their preparation for the competition.

If two or more students have the same number of points, the essay will be evaluated and it will be of an eliminatory character. If two or more students have the same number of points on both the test and the essay, live online testing will be organized through our online platform in which conversation will be evaluated.
