German exams & certificates

All PROLOG courses are designed to prepare you for official exams. PROLOG is an official test centre for all basic exams for the CEF levels A1 - C1. This means that you can take both the written and oral components of the following exams here in the school.

Start Deutsch 1
Start Deutsch 2
ZD - Zertifikat Deutsch
telc Deutsch B2 - ZD Plus
Zertifikat Deutsch für den Beruf - ZDfB
TestDaF - Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache

Here at PROLOG you will find all the assistance you need to register for the Intermediate examination (ZMP), the German University entrance exams (DSH/TestDaF), the Advanced level examination (ZOP), and the Minor/Major German Language Diploma (KDS/GDS).

But, that's not all! Why not prepare for the ZMP with one of our four-week Standard Exam Preparation courses with 20 hours of tuition per week, or our Combi-One-to-One course? Last Year, over 250 of our students took exams, and 90% passed successfully. Well done!


Furthermore, with the TestAS we offer a test that designed to assess a candidate’s suitability for studying at a German university, thereby increasing their chances of their application being accepted. TestAS is not a language test.


The onDaF is a standardised levelling test for German as a Foreign Language, which will quickly give you information about your current language competence level. You can also use it when applying for scholarships at, for example, universities.

In addition to these exams, all of PROLOG's students receive a graded certificate at the end of their courses. This is a widely recognised accreditation, which describes the type of course you have taken, the course's content, and the level of language you have achieved. We are more than happy to handle your registration for the official exams, most of which takes place at the Goethe Institute, or, in the case of the ZMP, in adult education centres.
