  • An Intermediate B1 card and hold less than 1 National Point (5000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to Intermediate B2
  • An Intermediate A2 card and hold less than 2 National Points (10000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to Intermediate B1
  • An Intermediate A1 card and hold less than 5 National Points (25000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to Intermediate A2
