Frequently asked questions

> If I want to register for the premier cycle (first stage of an undergraduate course) or for a school of architecture, do I have to take the TCF for DAP?
Yes, you do have to take the TCF for DAP.

> If I want to register for the deuxième cycle (second stage of an undergraduate course), for the troisième cycle (postgraduate course), a business school or a Grande Ecole, do I have to take the TCF for DAP?
You do not have to take the TCF for DAP, but will in all likelihood have to take the TCF. If you do not have the DELF level B2 or the DALF level C1 or C2, we strongly advise that you contact the French higher education institution that you want to register with, as soon as possible.
French higher education institutions may ask you to provide official proof of your level of competency in French, whether or not you are a national of a member country of the European Economic Area.
Please note: In this case, you must take the compulsory TCF examinations (listening comprehension, language structures, reading comprehension). Many higher education institutions also require you to take the optional TCF written expression examination, and possibly the spoken expression examination. You must therefore contact the university to which you have submitted, or plan to submit, your application to find out which examinations you are required to take.

> Can I prepare for the TCF for DAP?
There are two books to help you prepare for the listening comprehension, language structures and reading comprehension examinations:
