+ Higher education institutions providing training programs in foreign language majors (belonging to the group of foreign language and culture majors) or foreign language pedagogy (belonging to the group of teacher training majors);

- As for level 1 - level 3 test formats designed according to the six-level Framework of Reference for Foreign Language (students taking general education programs), they may be:

Continuing education centers, vocational education - continuing education centers, foreign language centers, and informatics - foreign language centers, established by Presidents of the provincial People's Committees or the Directors of the Departments of Education and Training (authorized by the Presidents of the provincial People's Committees).
