The Listening and Reading Modules contain 40 tasks each. Each correctly completed task gives one point. The maximum number of points for one Module is 40. The Band on a nine-point scale is calculated based on the total number of points. The Speaking and Writing Modules are evaluated immediately on a nine-point scale.
