Duolingo English Test

When language proficiency tests cost hundreds of dollars, Duolingo Test Center is a godsend. Aside from some security doubts, this app is perfect. With the superb design of the original, complete testing of listening, speaking and written skills, and even a real human supervisor, this tool is one-of-a-kind.
For those who have been using Duolingo to learn languages, the interface will be very familiar. The microphone and front-facing camera are used to full effect by an actual person, who monitors the exam (presumably after you've taken it). This is a great way to get your certification without the expense of IELTS or other similar qualifications. You can even upload your results directly to LinkedIn.
You are required to send a photo of yourself and of some ID, but there are no assurances in place that these will be kept secure. Some will find being recorded slightly invasive too.
