telc exams always take place on Friday in our second course-week and on both Friday and Saturday in our third and the fourth course-weeks. In order to take an exam, you have to register for it, which is possible until 13pm on the Thursday 2 weeks prior to your exam. For example, if your exam is on a Friday, then the deadline to register is 15 days before your exam; if your exam is on a Saturday, then the deadline to register is 16 days before your exam. In the following chart, we summarised the dates and fees of all telc exams. Please note: the fee corresponds to the language level. The better your German gets, the longer the exam takes. This is why the advanced levels are a bit more expensive than the beginner levels.
There is one special feature about the exam for telc C1 Hochschule: it is possible to apply for an expedited correction for the exam taking place in the fourth course week. In the chart you will see these dates marked with a (+E). The expedited correction usually reduces the correction time from 6 weeks to 3 weeks. If this is of interest for you, please let us know when registering – only then it is possible to apply for an expedited correction which costs 70€.

Late Registration: until 9 days before your exam date, by 2pm (+30€)
