OQLF has been planned to fairly balance the level 8 of the MICC language evaluation scale. A group of French speaking experts in Quebec have agreed it. It has also been confirmed by the various experts’ orders. There are some variations according to the candidate’s education level. Candidates graduated with a Master or a Doctorate should look for a higher needed level for writing and interview parts. The comprehension parts, oral and written, remain of a similar level for all candidates. The minimum passing score is 60% in each of the 4 parts. No sources or notes are sanctioned during the exam.
Process: Oral Comprehension: This part of the exam consists in 40 miscellaneous optional questions. Reading Comprehension: This part of the exam comprises of 20 miscellaneous optional questions about 2 or 3 texts on topics associated to the candidate’s profession. All answers are to be put in place in the given texts. Interview: This part points to evaluate the candidate’s possibility to speak about topics connected to his/her profession. Writing: This part focuses to evaluate the candidate’s capacity to write about topics linked to his/her professional activities, next given instructions and similarly the rules of the French language.
The candidate who falls short of someone’s expectations must write again only the part of the exams with a score below 60%. All parts passed with a score of 60% or more are forever gained. In case of a lack of certainty about the evaluation, it is feasible to ask for a correction. Then, the evaluation is redone by another reviewer. You can attempt the exam as many times as possible with a 3-month period in between. It is notable to pay attention to your weaknesses before attempting again the exam since many failures are negative for self-confidence and self- assurance
Employers have to use French in written documents meant for their staff in general, counting messages announced in the workplace. But they can write to an individual employee in English or another language. There can be a translation of these official documents and messages in English or another language, as long as the French is at least as acclaimed.
