WJEC Examinations - Welsh for Adults

CBAC Examinations

The National Centre for Learning Welsh would like to confirm that the Welsh for Adults exams will not be held in the summer of 2020, because of the public health crisis. We will discuss alternative opportunities to take these exams in future with our Learn Welsh course providers.

These pages contain information about the qualifications and resources which the WJEC provides for the Learn Welsh sector.

The WJEC provides a suite of qualifications for adults who are learning Welsh, called Defnyddio'r Gymraeg.

The suite gives candidates an opportunity to show their ability in speaking, listening, reading and writing Welsh - at different levels.  Qualifications can be gained by sitting examinations on specific days; they are open to adults who have learnt Welsh as a second language or who are currently learning.

The qualifications are for people learning in evening or daytime classes, on intensive courses or on workplace courses. You don't have to be enrolled in a class in order to sit an exam, nor to have taken the lower level exams first. 

The framework in the table below shows how the qualifications relate to the National Qualifications Framework and to the ALTE/CEFR framework.

Qualification Level in the Framework Framework of Reference (CEFR)
Mynediad / Entry Mynediad A1
Sylfaen / Foundation 1 A2
Canolradd / Intermediate 2 B1
Uwch / Advanced 3 B2
