telc exams always take place on a Friday in the second, third and the fourth course week. In order to take an exam, you have to register for it: it’s necessary to do so at least 31 days prior to the examination date until 12.00. It is even possible to sign up to an exam up to 9 days beforehand (until 12:00), however there’s a 30 EUR late registration fee if you sign up less than 31 days before the 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€)
