It comprises a set of practical and industry-led exams for lawyers and law students structured in three levels of professional exams: Level 1 Foundation, Level 2 Higher, and the prestigious Level 3 Advanced.
TOLES is essential for any international lawyer and a highly sought after qualification in the legal profession.
There is no pass/fail line, as TOLES is designed to measure the candidate's professional competence.
Students may wish to start with the TOLES Foundation or Higher exam before registering for the TOLES Advanced exam. The maximum score possible at Foundation or Higher level is 100.
TOLES Advanced grading system consists of six levels of legal English skills ranging from basic (Green 0-100) to excellent (Gold 451-500). The maximum score possible at Advanced level is 500. Please note that TOLES Advanced is designed to assess a candidate's skills in business law against a native English-speaking lawyer. Therefore, the higher grades (Orange and Gold) are rather a target of attainment, not what is expected from students after a limited period of study. TOLES Advanced grading system: GOLD (451-500): EXCELLENT general English skills, EXCELLENT legal English skills. ORANGE (401-450): VERY GOOD general English skills, VERY GOOD legal English skills. RED (301-400): WELL-ABOVE AVERAGE general English skills, GOOD legal English skills. PURPLE (201-300): GOOD general English skills, SATISFACTORY legal English skills. BLUE (101-200): ABOVE AVERAGE general English skill, APPROACHING SATISFACTORY legal English skills. GREEN (0-100): GOOD general English skills, ONLY BASIC legal English skills.
