  4. Candidates younger than 16 are advised not to take the examination at levels B2, C1 and C2, because the content of exam items requires knowledge and experience which younger candidates may not possess. Holders of a Greek secondary education certificate do not need a ΚΕΓ-Certificate to prove their knowledge of Greek.

  6. It is stressed that under no circumstances and for no reason whatsoever can the registration fee be refunded if a candidate does not eventually participate in the examination. Moreover, under no circumstances can a candidate substitute for another candidate who does not wish to take the examination.
