They must in any case submit a regular application within the established deadline.
Any reasons for absence other than sickness, as duly justified, will be evaluated by the CVCL on a case-by-case basis.

Any bank transfer payments made after the deadline can be claimed by writing to  esamiceli@unimi.it, provided that the current account from which the transfer was made is in the name of the candidate.

Results

To pass CELI exams, candidates must achieve the minimum score, both in the written and in the oral part, as shown in the relevant descriptions on the www.cvcl.it website.
Candidates who have not passed the written part (consisting of the following sections: Reading Comprehension, Written Production, Linguistic Competence - starting from CELI 3 - and Listening Comprehension) but have passed the oral part, or vice versa, can capitalize their partial result and resit the failed exam part within a year, paying 70% of the total fee.
