Questions referring to the Placement test

The result of the test is valid for two semesters, i.e. for the current as well as the following semester.

This is possible in general. That being the case, however, you should still not wait too long in order to be able to complete the entire programme. A prerequisite for successful language learning is regular and continuous practice. So, please try and make good progress in your own interest.

After receiving the certificate for a course, you are automatically admitted to the next course. Another placement test is not required even if you did not pass the exam. In such a case you can retake the exam and continue the course programme afterwards.
