Structure of the B1 Level Exam in Spanish
It consists of 4 parts:
Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing
The total duration of the exam is 137 to 195 minutes, with the first three parts taking place one after the other (1st Listening, 2nd Writing, 3rd Reading). There will be a minimum of 20 minutes of rest between the first three parts and the 4th part (Speaking), which can be done on the same day, or on a different day, with a maximum limit of 7 days after the other block has been completed
Listening (Duration: 30-40 minutes)
Listening consists of 4 exercises, each of which is based on an audio recording that can be a monologue or a conversation between 2 or more people. Exercises include: multiple response, sentence completion, completion of charts, graphs or diagrams, and short answer in one or two sentences. In this part of the exam, it should be noted that accents from any part of the world can be heard, which adds a substantial degree of difficulty.
Reading (Duration: 45-70 minutes)
It consists of 40 questions grouped in 3 sections. Each text is between one and two pages long and several questions are asked about it. The texts are excerpts from books, research articles, newspapers and scientific journals. The type of questions, as in the oral part, is highly varied: multiple answers, completing tables, graphs or diagrams, locating information in the text, indicating the writer's opinion, etc.
Writing (Duration: 50-70 minutes)
This part consists of two exercises, an essay between 80 and 200 words and another between 200 and 350 words. As a first draft a small report is usually requested on a piece of information provided to the examinee in any format (text, graph, table or diagram).
Regarding the 200-350 word essay, a piece of information is usually presented very briefly (a couple of lines), followed by a statement about it, and then the candidate is asked to explain whether they agree or disagree with the statement, briefly stating the necessary arguments. The second exercise accounts for two thirds of the "Writing" grade and the first exercise for one third.
Speaking (Duration: 12-15 minutes)
In this last part, a conversation is held with an examiner, and it is designed to be as realistic as possible. It is divided into 3 subsections. In the first, the candidate responds to personal, family and/or everyday questions. In the second, the candidate discusses a specific topic indicated by the examiner. In this case, the ability to produce a coherent and orderly discourse is valued. In the third and last one, both the examiner and the candidate have a conversation on a specific topic, where oral interaction and discussion skills are assessed. The entire speaking part is recorded for later review purposes.
