General information

  • Registering and deregistering

    Registering for the exam

    Candidates register for the Slovene language exam by filling out the REGISTRATION FORM and paying for the exam.

    Address for sending application forms and for registering in person: Examination Centre, Kongresni trg 12 1000 Ljubljana; e-mail: izpitni.center@ff.uni-lj.si.

    A candidate can also register for the basic level exam with one of the external exam providers; intermediate and advanced level exams are administered only at the Examination Centre.

    Deadline for registration and payment: at least ten days before the exam date. An exam will be administered if at least six candidates have registered. Before the exam, candidates receive an invitation with precise details about the time and place of the exam.

    It is also possible for a candidate to take the exam individually.

    Candidates who do not live in Slovenia must arrange a temporary residence permit before entering Slovenia.

    Deregistering from the exam

    A candidate can deregister from the exam no later than two days before the scheduled exam date. In this case the exam is re-scheduled for the next exam period, or the candidate can receive 85% of the costs back. If a candidate does not take the exam, and does not deregister, s/he must register again to take an exam; in that case, full payment for the exam is required.

  • Exam fee

    Basic level 122,00 EUR
    Intermediate level 137,25 EUR
    Advnaced  level 137,25 EUR

    The fee for individual exam is higher. The exam fee covers information about the exam, the exam itself, a Certificate of Slovene or statement of results, and postage costs.

    Candidates who are entitled to a free-of-charge first attempt at the Slovene language exam at the basic level must present a Certificate of Eligibility; this certificate is obtained at the responsible administrative unit. 

  • Exam administration

    The Slovene language exams are composed of a written and an oral section. For both sections you will have to prove your identity by means of valid photo identification. For the written section of the exam you will need a pen; you may not use any other aids. Candidates take the advanced level exam on computers (provided by the Examination Centre).

    The written and the oral section of the basic level exam are usually administered the same day, while at the advanced level the two sections are administered over two (usually consecutive) days.

  • Results

    Candidates will receive their exam results no later than 30 days after the exam. If the candidate has passed the exam, s/he will receive a Certificate of Slovene as a Second and Foreign Language, along with an insert about the results. The Certificate is a publicly valid document and the candidate can use it for various official purposes.

    If the candidate fails the exam, s/he will receive a statement of results.

  • Candidates’ Rights

    After the exam, candidates can look at their exam papers and discuss their answers; they will also receive an explanation about the grade awarded. Appointments for looking into the exam documentations must be arranged in advance.

    Candidates can appeal against the exam procedure (within eight days of the exam) or against the exam result (within eight days of having receiving the result). The appeal must be justified and written in Slovene. Address for appeals:

    Univerza v Ljubljani
    Izpitni center Centra za slovenščino kot drugi/tuji jezik 
    Pritožna komisija Izpitnega centra
    Kongresni trg 12
    SI-1000 Ljubljana

  • Candidates with special needs

    Candidates with special needs can take the exam in an adapted form, for example, with additional writing time, larger print, by means of lip reading, and so on. The candidate can take an adapted exam if he or she asks to do so when registering and if he or she provides the appropriate confirmation or recommendation of a specialist doctor.
