Digital German Exams

The digital German exams are:

  • user-friendly, thanks to smarter features which, for example, display pending tasks and the remaining exam time and enable the candidates to change the font size.
  • flexible in their implementation.
  • resource-efficient and sustainable.


How It Works Digitally

Following examinations are offered by the Goethe-Institut in various centres in the digital format as well.

The digital exams are carried out in the exam centre on laptops with a German keyboard provided by the institute. On the laptops, exam participants complete the modules reading, writing and listening (with headphones). The speaking module will continue to be examined by the experienced examiners of the Goethe-Institut. It is not possible to take the exam from home.
