01 Written Translation of a General Text

03 Written Translation of a Semi-specialised Text in a Science, Social Science or Law context
You will then sit the mock exam under exam conditions. Exams are run once a month and you will be offered a date within 6-8 weeks of signing up. Your work will be marked by a qualified Language Specialist (subject to language availability and marking timeframe), who will provide you with written detailed feedback as well as a 30-minute phone call, in which you can review your assessment and gain further development tips for when you sit real exam.
