    CELPIP Results and Re-evalutation

    As Cifi mentions, CELPIP is ridiculously hard on the writing piece. I'm a native English speaker and I got 12/12/11/8 with the 8 in writing, had to redo the test and with weeks of prep I still only got up to a 9 on my writing. Try using the below link to prepare, he is pretty clear and simple...

    CELPIP HELP.

    I ended up getting 12/12/11/9 - the 9 bumped my score up to 479 from 447. Was worthwhile for me.

    CELPIP HELP.

    Hey mate, I'm an English native from the UK and I got all 12's apart from an 8 in Writing, so I have just retaken the CELPIP exam. I found this guy on youtube to be really useful in explaining how to actually answer and structure your responses...

    Ray of Hope - 118th Draw

    I don't think I can do that... see the bottom line: Your experience must be at least: One year of full-time work 30 hours/week for 12 months = 1 year full time (1,560 hours), or equal amount in part-time hours, such as: 15 hours/week for 24 months = 1 year full time (1,560 hours) 30...

    I debated it, but I have to fly to Vancouver to do the test as I'm in Whitehorse and CELPIP has more dates available. Unfortunately they win and take more of my money.

    I don't quite get what you mean? I worked a permanent full time job, 37.5 hours a week.

    Yeah I looked into that as I already have 12 months of Canadian experience but I wouldn't reach 2 years until September this year which will be a month after my visa ends.

    CELPIP re-eval after 6 weeks - any success?

    It has been over 6 weeks since I took my CELPIP exams, and in retrospect need one of my marks to go up ( a level 8 on writing). Has anyone every tried to re-evaluate after the 6 week cut off? I know they're pretty adamant that it cannot be done, however surely there is a way? Cheers.

    Unfortunately I didn't realize the impact that not getting a 9 would have on my application. SO, the 6 week period for re-evaluations has passed, and I have called numerous times to ask if there is anything that can be done, but I just get fed scripted responses.

    CELPIP through Paragon Testing Enterprise Inc. STAY AWAY

    I concur... I scored 12/12/11/8 with the 8 in the writing section. Considering I am English I was pretty shocked and was not aware you could apply for re-evaluation of marks. I have since missed the 6 weeks cut off point and cannot get a straight answer out of their customer service team or any...

    this is what I worry. I am already in Canada with my work permit ending in August. I'm going to have to redo my CELPIP to get a level 9 on the writing. I got 12/12/11/8 and I'm British... ridiculous lol
