State certificate examinations in Polish as a foreign language

The state certificate examinations in Polish as a foreign language are held by the State Commission for the Certification of Proficiency in Polish as a Foreign Language. Candidates passing the examinations obtain a certificate indicating their level of proficiency in Polish. In order to pass the examinations, candidates have to receive positive results in each part of the test (listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking, writing and grammatical correctness).

Currently, there are three levels of examination (B1, B2 and C2) organised at least three times per year in Krakow, Warsaw, Moscow, London, etc. All foreigners and Polish citizens permanently residing abroad may take the examinations regardless if, where, how and how long they have prepared for the examination. People who on the examination day are at least 16 may sit the B1 and B2 examination. People aged 18 and more may take the C2 examination.
