* The exam takes place at TANDEM, generally on a Friday and on a Saturday. The written part of the exam starts on the first day of the exam at 1 pm, the oral one is to follow on the next day in the morning.


*  The written section takes approx. 150 minutes excluding the introduction and breaks, the oral section, which is completed in sessions with two examinees at a time, takes 15 minutes (plus 20 minutes preparation).


Only one exam section is successfully completed: What can you can?

Have you already completed the examination and passed either the oral or written section? If so, you can have this section of the examination credited. You must send us the examination result (the sheet entitled "Ergebnisbogen") so that we can forward in on to TELC. IMPORTANT: The failed section of the examination must be repeated by the end of the following calendar year, after that the result will be invalid. Please be aware that even if you only want to repeat a section of the examination, you will be required to pay the full examination fee.
