Replacing or correcting erroneous certificates – Hungary

If the certificate recognized by the state contains erroneous data, upon the request of the candidate and depending on the nature of the error, the Accreditation Centre for Foreign Language Examinations of the Educational Authority issues a new certificate (e.g. in the case of a misspelled name within one year after the certificate was issued, or for gender and name changes) or an official verification (e.g. lack of second Christian name, wrong place or date of birth).

Application for official verification must be submitted directly to the Accreditation Centre for Foreign Language Examinations of the Educational Authority.
