If you register at least 31 days before your exam, you only have to pay the registration fee. After this, it is still possible to register by 12pm up to 9 days (for Friday exams) or 10 days (for Saturday exams) before the exam day. During this time period (9-31 days before the exam) you must pay an additional 30 EUR late registration fee. The option of late registration is perfect for those of you who spontaneously decide that they want to sit the exam. If you know in advance that you want to take the exam, we recommend signing up as early as possible to avoid the late registration fee.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to postpone or cancel an exam once it has been booked. You can find out more about this regulation in our terms and conditions.

Yes, you can indeed! Having your written and oral exam on the same day makes it possible for you to take the exam with us even if you are not from Berlin or if you have to take a day off work for the exam. Please keep the whole day of your exam free, as there might be a long break between your written and oral exams.
The written and oral exam take place on the same day. If you still want to take the exam parts on different day, you will have to register for two different exams. The partial results of the two parts can then be merged (see next point).
Yes, you can! The partial result of an exam is valid until the end of the following calendar year. This means if you took your exam in March 2020, your result will be valid until December 31st, 2021. While it is valid, you can have your result recognised by telc and combine it with the result of a later exam. Let’s say you only passed the oral part of your exam – next time you can register just for the written part of the exam then combine the two results and vice versa. Important: In order for your results to be recognised, we will need your participant number (“Teilnehmernummer”) from the exam you want to use by the day of your new exam. You can find your Teilnehmernummer on your results sheet or telc certificate.
About a week before the day of your exam, you will receive an email with all the important information about your exam day, including what time you have to be at the school. Usually, an exam day begins at around 8 a.m. Since there is a break between the written and oral part, you should keep the entire day free. If you have not received the email with your start time up to four days before the exam date, please check your spam folder. If you cannot find an email there either, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you.
For the written exam, you must lock your phone away and are forbidden from using it, even during your break (only the C1 and C1 Hochschule exams have a break during the written part). The same goes for your oral exam: as soon as you have checked into the waiting area, you are no longer allowed to use your phone. Please make sure to make any important calls or send any important messages before checking in to the waiting area. The use of electronic aids or any other aids is also strictly prohibited..
There are a few things that you must bring:
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the time of your oral exam. We will inform you of the time you have to arrive at the waiting area. From this waiting area, you will be taken into the preparation room and then to the exam room. It is not possible to make individual adjustments. Please make sure to keep your exam day free from any other appointments to avoid stress or time pressure.
You will receive an email from us a few days before the exam. Here we will tell you what time you have to be at speakeasy by. On the day of the exam, please first come to the office on the second floor. This is where the ID check takes place and we will tell you in which room your exam is. If you have booked the complete exam, you will take the written exam first and then the oral exam. For the oral exam, we will give you a time by which you have to be in the waiting area. Please leave plenty of time for the oral exam. You will be taken from the waiting area to the preparation room (only for B- and C-Level exams) and from there to the oral exam room.
The correction time for telc exams is up to 6 weeks. You can check the exam status at any time on our website. To do this, simply go to “telc exam” in the menu bar above and then select “exam status”. Once you’ve chosen your exam date and level, you will be able to view the current status and expected arrival date of your result. To go directly to the exam status, click here. Please note that unfortunately, speakeasy has no influence on the correction time and we cannot give you any individual information about your exam. As soon as we have received your results, we will send you a scanned copy of them via email.
From 01.01.2021, telc will no longer offer the option of express correction for exams throughout Germany. Therefore, the correction process cannot be accelerated. Please understand that speakeasy has no influence on the speed of the correction process.
As soon as we receive the results from telc, we scan them and send them to you via email. To get the original certificate, you can either collect it from the school yourself, have it sent to you by post or have another person with a form of permission pick it up for you. If you choose someone else to pick up your results, please contact us beforehand.
If you have passed both parts of the exam, there is no expiry date for your results. If you have only passed one of the two parts of the exam, your partial result for either the written part or oral part is valid until the end of the following calendar year. Let’s say you took your exam in March 2020 - your partial result is then valid until December 31st, 2021.
