Your registration must be received at least 7 days before the date of your exam.
Please note that candidates will not be able to choose their oral examination date.
They will receive an email one week before the examinations at the latest to inform them of the precise day and time of their exam.
Results are emailed to you about one month after taking the test. After this, you will then receive emails advising you when your certificate and diploma have arrived - certificates require a few weeks after test results and diplomas require a few months - so that you can come and pick them up at the Alliance française of Edmonton. If you cannot come and pick them up, we can arrange to have them mailed to you: you will need to provide us with a Large (33x25.4cm) prepaid envelop with your name and address on it.
Results assigned by national juries are final. If you failed the exam, you may apply to have a look at your exam paper within two weeks of
your results being emailed to you. To form such request, please email us at email@example.com
Note that DELF examiners and markers are all trained and authorized by the CIEP. They follow strict assessment guidelines and are regularly monitored.
