What Duolingo score do you need for your course?
The exam is scored from 10-160. This is a total score, and there is no break up of score as there are no hard sections. Top schools and advanced programs require a score above 120. This is an average, so check with each school you are applying to. Duolingo also gives you a bonus. It will tell you how your score on Duolingo roughly translates to TOEFL and IELTS scores that you take.
When do you get your result?
Once you finish your exam, it is sent to proctors. You will get an email that says your score will be available in 48 hours. When your scores are ready, then you get another email that takes to your homepage on the site where you can see the result.
The Duolingo English Test Scores are valid for two years.
One can take two “certified” tests in a 30-day period. A certified test means a test that you have completed and received a score. If your test had technical glitches during the exam, it wouldn’t be counted in the two-test limit.
Once you get your scores, you can send them to your preferred institutions from the results page itself. As stated earlier, there’s no limit on how many reports you can send.
