NOTES

1. All tests calibrated against the Common European Framework and IELTS as the master (and preferred) qualification.
2. Qualification levels decrease from left to right. So, for example in ELSA, level 3 is equivalent to IELTS 6 and would be acceptable for any requirement below 6, but not above
