Registrations for the examinations for the 2024 Certificate of Attainment in Greek language are now open.
The examinations for the 2024 Certificate of Attainment in Greek language will take place in May this year at the Greek Community of Melbourne, Examination Centre of Melbourne, Code No: 61007.
The Certificate of Attainment in Greek is the only national certificate, officially recognised by the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, that confirms the knowledge of Greek as a foreign/second language, starting from A1, for children 8-12 years old, to C2.
Candidates who wish to participate in exams for all levels must have completed their 8th year by May 31st, of the current year. Additionally, candidates for A1 level (8-12 years) must not be older than 12 years on May 31st, of the current year.
It is recommended for the candidates under the age of 16 years old to avoid taking the examination at levels B2, C1 and C2, because the content of exam items requires knowledge and experience which younger candidates may not possess.

However, in extreme circumstances, if this is not possible, you can apply on a paper application form.
