GAT Exams

14 January 2022 Categories Senior

Dear Parents,

I am writing to give you information regarding the Greek Attainment Test (GAT). These examinations are run by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Education’s newly founded Centre of Greek Language. Examinations are available at six levels of increasing difficulty, A1, A2, B1, B2, Γ1, Γ2. Students at Campion are offered levels B1, B2, Γ1 and Γ2 . These exams involve written, listening, reading and spoken components and are administered by the Hellenic American Union.

The examinations are offered to pupils in Years 9, 10, 11 and 12 (Levels B1, B2, Γ1 and Γ2) on a separate basis to the IGCSE and IB examinations which we offer in Years 11 and 13. All successful pupils will receive a certificate attesting to their level of attainment, which is fully recognised in Greece and throughout the European Community.

The exam fee is €73 for levels Β2, Γ1 and Γ2 and €65 for level B1 and covers the fee levied by the Hellenic American Union. The exams will be held at HAU on 23rd May for level B1 and 24th May for levels B2 and Γ1.

Level Γis held on 25th May.

If you wish your son or daughter to participate in these examinations, please deposit the appropriate examination fee by Thursday 27th January at the very latest, so that the entry formalities can be completed and return the slip below to me.
