What does an 80% Duolingo English test result mean in terms of CEFR levels (A1,A2,B1,...) ?

Did you take the paid test? If yes, 80% is considered proficient, or B2. A score of 90% or above is considered C2. I took it as a native English speaker and got 92%, so the test is very hard! Well done!

I got an 84% the third time I took it :P Probably a C1.

I don't think any comparison study has been done between CEFR scores and Duolingo scores. For an interpretation of the Duolingo scores, you can take a look at the link below.

You can find the Test Center score correlation with TOEFL iBT scores in the study report at the following link.

It would probably be equivalent to about a B2- low C1 range.

I took it 3 months ago and I got 89% and in other tests I got C1-C2 (depending on the test). So I guess 80% may be in the B2 range.
