The results of the TCF reliably position candidates at one of the six levels (from level A1 to level C2) of the Council of Europe's scale. The results are sent to the Alliance Française within 3 weeks of receipt of the examination papers by the CIEP. We will then contact you by email or telephone in order to forward these results to you.
