Applications may be made to have a test done in Taiwan rescored. The scoring of TOCFL tests is rigorously undertaken, and as a result, to date very few rescoring requests have resulted in a change of the result. No request to review, examine, or have access to the answer sheets and/or files in any other way will be accepted, and the names and other personal details of the scorers will not be disclosed.

    1. Services Available: Test-takers in Taiwan with special needs may request SC-TOP to arrange the following.

      2. Test-takers who have been given an exemption from the Reading Test or Listening Test section of the Listening & Reading Test will receive a score report and certificate that only lists the results of the test they have attended.
      3. SC-TOP does its best to accommodate the needs of test-takers who require special assistance while maintaining the fairness of the test. SC-TOP will regretfully decline any test registration if the form of special assistance requested goes beyond the scope of the services it can arrange.
