Can I book an exam without having attended a previous language course?

Yes, you can book all exams without having attended a previous language course with us.

Is the examination (written and oral) on the same day?

Yes, both parts of the examination take place on the same day. We recommend that you reserve the whole day for the examination.

How long does it take to get the result?

4-6 weeks after the examination day.

Can I book an express exam?

Unfortunately not. Since August 2021 telc gGmbH has removed this option from its portfolio meaning it is no longer possible to book an express examination with any examination centre, FOKUS Sprachen or otherwise, in Germany. If you’re needing your results as quickly as possible, we recommend you use our online registration tool to find the next available examination date at one of our test centres.

Can I get credit for the oral exam I have already passed?

Yes, you can have a passed part of the examination credited. The result of a passed partial examination (written or oral) can be credited to a repeat examination within a certain period of time. The period begins when an examination is first taken and ends on the 31st of December of the following calendar year. However, this does not apply to dual-level examinations, e.g. Deutsch B1-B2 Beruf, Deutsch B1-B2 Pflege, Deutsch B2-C1 Beruf, Deutsch B2-C1 Medizin.

Please let us know at the time of registration whether you would like to have an examination part credited.

What happens if I am ill?

If you are ill on the day of the examination, you must inform us immediately and send us a medical certificate (the notification of illness must be signed by a doctor working in Germany). The certificate must be submitted to Fokus Sprachen & Seminare no later than 2 days after the examination day. However, the illness must be reported by e-mail before the examination.

Can I use a dictionary during the examination?

No. You are not allowed to use a dictionary or other aids.

Can I repeat the exam?

Yes, you can repeat the exam as often as you like. If you have only failed the oral exam or only the written exam, you do not have to repeat the whole exam.

How do I prepare for the exam?

You can take part in one of our preparation courses. We offer both online and classroom courses.
