ICAO English Exam Rating

Aviation English and the language proficiency in accordance with ICAO requirements shall be assessed by two different language proficiency assessors.

ICAO English Exam Rating

ICAO English exam rating can be performed real-time during the aviation English exam itself. The ICAO English exam rating must be performed by two independent Aero Language professionals - a language proficiency examiner (LPE) and a language proficiency rater (LPR).

Each of them rates individual parts of aviation English exam. If ICAO English exam is performed with both the language proficiency examiner (LPE) and a language proficiency rater (LPR) present, the results of your ICAO English exam are known practically immediately after the aviation English exam.

In case only one language proficiency examiner is present during the ICAO English exam, we strive to rate your ICAO language proficiency exam within 72 hours. You can expect the results of your ICAO English exam after the 72-hour-period at the latest, .

The individual parts of ICAO English exam are rated by both the language proficiency examiner (LPE) and a language proficiency rater (LPR) of Aero Language on a ICAO English rating scale from ICAO Level 1 to ICAO Level 6 (so-called "ICAO English LEVELS"). The lowest ICAO English LEVEL out of the different parts received will be the final ICAO English LEVEL of your ICAO English exam. In other words, the lowest level out of all ICAO Exam levels will be your ICAO English proficiency Level. In case the language proficiency examiner (LPE) and a language proficiency rater (LPR) do not agree on the final ICAO Exam level, language proficiency exam rating must be performed by another Aero Language professional.
