FTCE English 6-12 Exam Registration
To register for the exam, you must first create an FTCE/FELE account. Once your account has been created, log in and select the English 6-12 exam. From there, you can register for the exam and schedule your testing appointment.
The exam is split into two sections: a multiple-choice section and a writing section. You may choose to take both sections in one testing appointment, or you may choose to take each section at a different testing appointment.
On the day of the exam, you should arrive at the testing center 15-30 minutes earlier than your scheduled appointment. When you arrive, you will be asked to sign in and provide two valid forms of government-issued ID, one of which must contain your photograph.
Before the exam begins, you will be asked to place all personal items (cell phone, bags, watch, keys, wallet, etc.) in a locker outside the testing room, or you may be asked to leave them in your car.
Once the test begins, you will be allowed to take breaks. However, the timer will not be stopped during your break, so use your break time carefully.
How the Exam is Scored
Your score for the multiple-choice section is determined by taking your raw score (the number of questions you answered correctly) and converting it to a scaled score. To pass, you will need to get a minimum scaled score of 200. You must also achieve a minimum score of 8 out of 12 points on the writing section.
You will receive your official score report within four weeks after testing.
