The review of the exam results are regulated by points (3), (3a) and (3b) of § 4 of Government Decree 137/2008. (V. 16.). Candidates may request a review within 15 days after the results were made public. A review may be requested independently from inspecting the test.
Candidates have the right to submit two types of requests for review:
- The candidate may request a review by reference to infringement of the law, or miscalculation of the score. In this case the review is free of charge.
- The candidate may request the re-evaluation of their written tests and oral exam by a third assessor. This review is subject to a fee. The fee for re-evaluation is 2.500 HUF for each section of the test. Proof of payment must be attached to the request submitted. In absence of proof of payment the Examination Centre does not conduct re-evaluation
The “Request for Review/Re-evaluation” form must be submitted to the head of the Examination Centre within 15 days after the results were made public. The request must be submitted via email and post. The date of submitting the request is the day it was posted via mail.
