The common evaluation table used for languages in the European Union (see below) gives a general idea of the levels of competence of students in French.
In individual cases, this has to be refined by a more specific evaluation by the teacher.
All languages have at least three registers :
From level A1 to B2, the evaluation of your level is on everyday and formal languages.
From levels B2 to C2, all registers are taken into account.
Generally speaking, it is easier to understand a conversation in formal French than an informal exchange in a café or between friends joking or talking about everyday life's problems.
