Structure and content
Structure, duration and weighting of the 4 parts of the examination
Below is a table with the sections, characteristics and duration of the different parts of the test.
Structure of the TECH C1 exam
It consists of 4 parts:
Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing
The total duration of the exam is 90 to 225 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 35-45 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 answers 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: 50-70 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 actual excerpts from books, research articles, newspapers and scientific journals. The type of questions, as in the oral part, is highly varied: multiple choice, completing tables, graphs or diagrams, locating information in the text, indicating the writer's opinion, etc.
Writing (Duration: 70-90 minutes)
This part consists of two exercises, an essay between 200 and 350 words and another between 450 and 600 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 450-600 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: 15-20 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 final 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.
