Said e-mail, whose correct functioning is the responsibility of the candidate, will serve to communicate with Instituto Cervantes for exam sessions, grades, and other processes related to the DELE exam.
Parents, guardians, or legal representatives must register minors or persons without legal capacity to act, bearing in mind that they must provide a different e-mail address for each of the candidates who register.
It is the obligation of the candidate, whatever the means of registration, to check the correctness of all the data that appears in the receipt received as proof of their registration, both in relation to their personal data and in what concerns the level, date and place of the session for the DELE diploma chosen.
With the payment of registration, the candidate:
declares to fulfill the administrative and economic requirements required to obtain the DELE Spanish diploma; and
undertakes to attend the examination provided with those documents that certify compliance with these conditions, which are:
- the receipt of your registration;
- your passport or official identity document with a photograph, for its correct identification;
