Each text is assessed by two licensed telc raters, with quality control carried out at telc’s international headquarters. Each text (Writing, Part 1 and Writing, Part 2) can be awarded a maximum of 15 points. If criterion I and/or criterion III are marked “D”, then the whole text receives zero points. Calculation of the score Each of the writing samples in the subtest Writing are awarded points according to the three criteria: Content, Communicative Design and Language. The points are awarded as follows: A=5 points B=3 points C=1 point D=0 points

The final score for Writing, Part 1 is multiplied by 3 and the final score for Writing, Part 2 is multiplied by 2. Writing, Part 1 is worth a maximum of 45 points and Writing, Part 2 is worth a maximum of 30 points.
