Internal Assessment Test


Classes at the Preparatory School usually conclude with the “assessment test” (written and oral sections) after the second semester (upper-level course). However, it is also possible to take the test externally, in other words without having attended the class.

Feststellungsprüfung, or assessment test, is short for Prüfung zur Feststellung der Eignung ausländischer Studienbewerber für die Aufnahme eines Studiums an Hochschulen in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, which means “Test to assess the suitability of foreign university applicants for studying at an institution of higher education in the Federal Republic of Germany.”

The assessment test for Focus courses covers up to six class subjects, three of them tested in the written section.

The Precourse concludes after one semester with the assessment test in the subject of German.

After having failed a test, a student may re-take it once and only at the same Preparatory School.

When a student passes the assessment test, a certificate is issued that certifies, in conjunction with proof of prior education, the bearer’s authorization to study at all higher academic institutions in Berlin and all other states of the Federal Republic of Germany within one area of study (T, W, or M).
