Can anyone take the exam?

Exams offered by the SFU DELF-DALF Examination Centre are intended for current or future students at SFU or UBC.

The DELF tout public and the DALF are intended for adults and young adults whose first language is not French (born in a non French-speaking country and not in possession of a teaching certificate for secondary or postsecondary) and are seeking an assessment of their language proficiency for personal or professional reasons.

Candidates can take the same exam as many times as necessary, until they pass.
However, if you already obtained a diploma and want to take the same level exam again, you must agree to have your previous diploma revoked. A written statement is required before taking the exam. Once your previous diploma revoked, whether you pass or fail the exam subsequently, your previous diploma will no longer be valid.
