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.

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 CVCL website.
Candidates who did not pass the written part (consisting of the following sections: Reading Comprehension, Written Production, Linguistic Competence - starting from CELI 3 - and Listening Comprehension), but passed the oral part, or vice versa, can capitalize on their partial result and resit the failed exam part within a year, paying 70% of the total fee.
