What is the TCF for Québec?

The TCF for Québec is a specific version of the Test de Connaissance du Français (TCF) which has been elaborated by the CIEP based on the request of the Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities of Québec (MICC) to assess French language competency in those wishing to emigrate to Québec.

The TCF for Québec is composed of listening comprehension, oral expression and (as of 2013) optional reading comprehension and written expression modules (worth a maximum of 2 of 16 possible points corresponding to competency levels—see table below). 

The candidate must achieve a minimum overall evaluated level of B2.
