Don’t study because you need to. Study because knowledge is power. Study because no one can ever take that knowledge from you. Study because you want to know more. Study because it enhances and grows you.

Jeez! To much study isn’t it. Yes! You guessed it right. This blog is about exams! Check your body temperature, because, unless I’m mistaken, all of you would have got exam fever shortly after reading the word “exam”. Just kidding. So, coming to the point, this blog is all about Aufnahmeprüfung.

What is Aufnahmeprüfung?

As you know, one of the procedures to enter into a German university is

Doing a Language Course  Getting admitted in a Studienkolleg Completing Studienkolleg Entering University.

This Aufnahmeprüfung is positioned between doing a language course and entering into a Studienkolleg. To put in easy words, its just an entrance exam for students who wish to attend the Studienkolleg. This exam tests whether the student’s language skills and mathematical knowledge is sufficient enough to take part in the course. Aufnahmeprüfung can be written only twice in each University, that is, in Summer semester and Winter semester. The exam takes place in the month of January or February for Summer semester and in July or August for Winter semester. However, this might vary for different Studienkollegs.

Though Aufnahmeprüfung is conducted to test ones’ knowledge in German, Chart evaluation and Mathematics, don’t forget that the exam pattern may vary for different Studienkolleg. But majority follows the given pattern:
