From March 15, the Writing exam will be organized once a week at the most. On Friday, March 15 and after that on Thursdays only. The old Writing exam will be cancelled from March 1. You will receive a letter from DUO if there are any changes in the date or time of your exam.

A crowd

Many people will take the exam at the same time. Therefore you have to be present 45 minutes before the exam begins. This also goes for all the other exams.
