General Features

The TestDaF is a standardised language test assessing linguistic performance within the context of university life at an intermediate to advanced level. Within the scale of the European Framework of Reference the TestDaF comprises the levels B 2 to C 1.

The TestDaF has been developed for candidates with a considerable knowledge of German (e.g. after approx. 800 hours/teaching units). The TestDaF examination may also be taken as a placement test and can be taken any number of times.

The TestDaF measures several levels of language performance. Each candidate's scores are aggregated to determine the candidate's performance as to one of the following levels:

  • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 5 (TDN 5)
  • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 4 (TDN 4)
  • TestDaF-Niveaustufe 3 (TDN 3)

TDN 5 is the highest level. A score below TDN 3 shows that this subtest the candidate has not yet reached the lowest level measured by the TestDaF.

Should you reach the highest level, TDN 5, nothing is in the way of your studies in Germany, as far as language proficiency is concerned (naturally the remaining financial, academic and legal requirements must also be met)

The TestDaF-Institut send us the certificate showing your results within approx. eight weeks following the test.

The TestDaF comprises four subtests:

  • Reading comprehension
  • Listening comprehension
  • Writing
  • Speaking

Based on the scores achieved in each of the subtests, the TestDaF provides a differentiated linguistic profile of the applicant.

The test papers are compiled at the TestDaF Institut and are subject to a centralised evaluation procedure. Examinations are carried out in the Test Centers licensed by the TestDaF Institute.
