The 5 levels of the English for Business (EFB) test

The EFB English for Business of the LCCI exam is available in five levels:

While the written part of this exam is compulsory, the oral part is optional. The test covers the writing of reports and business correspondence as well as reading comprehension. The oral part uses fictitious situations to test expression and language skills. This test is often used in companies.

The EFC - English for Commerce focuses on reading comprehension and document writing. This test can be taken at levels B1 to C2. An oral exam can also be chosen.

The PBE - Practical Business English can be taken at the age of 14. However, knowledge of general business English should also be present here. The test can already be taken with the language skills A1/A2.

Grades & Results of the LCCI Test

The grading of the LCCI exams is based on the following scale:

  • 75% and above receives Pass with Distinction and is equivalent to a grade of 1.
  • 60-74% receives "Pass with Credit" and corresponds to a "Good Pass" with a grade of 2.
  • With 50-59% achieving "Pass", "Satisfactory" which corresponds to a grade 3.

Since language skills are not static, but change depending on how you integrate the foreign language into your everyday life, the certificates are valid for two years. At the end of this period, one should re-examine one's language competence.
