C1, 2016-17 (Y6 in Andalucía)
In Spain, state-run language schools (EOI's) have standardized their Certificates to match the European levels called the CEF, the Common European Framework. However, as EOI's have been demoted -- they used to certify a non-standardized C1 level -- the real situation in the classrooms is that Intermedio 2 courses in Autonomous Communities where it's 6 years, a B1 European level or "Intermediate", generally use Upper Intermediate textbooks, this is to say B2 level textbooks. Similarly, Avanzado 2 students, who take a B2 CEF examination at the end of their course in June, use an Advanced level or C1 level textbook! Consequently, most students who are able to follow their courses pass their Certificate exams at the end of the course. The bad thing about this is that their Certificates show they have a lower level than most of them probably have.
