Loved:

The test space was set up well for Covid and the teachers all very nice.

Improvements:

The listening portion of the test was made more difficult for several reasons: the tape recording was a bit scratchy, the background noise in the actual recording is louder than the actual dialog, and the protests outside the building due to BLM and the recent elections also made it hard to hear. Also, why does it take 6 weeks to get the results when the test is all multiple choice. The speaking portion could be decided right there an then by the native listeners:)

Loved:

The proctors were patient and clear in their instructions. They executed the several parts of the exam on time, efficiently. I'm glad I took the test, and I look forward to eventually taking the B1 exam.

Improvements:

The listening part of the exam was much more difficult than the other parts. The conversations were spoken quite quickly, faster than I normally hear on news broadcasts such as Deutsche Welle and Tagesschau. I need to improve my listening skills, but it seemed like maybe the listening portion was maybe a bit out of scale difficulty-wise with the other parts.
