The test consists of three different parts: use of language and listening (80 minutes approximately), writing (30 minutes) and speaking (10 minutes approximately, with a monologue and interactive questions).

B2 (MECR) is the minimum level required to apply for the grants that "la Caixa" Foundation offers for postgraduate studies in European universities (does not apply for those in the United Kingdom and Ireland) and PhD studies in Spanish or Portuguese universities.
