What is TestDAF?

The TestDAF is a language test conducted for foreign learners of German planning to study in Germany. The examination is centrally developed and rated by the TestDAF Institute in Hagen, Germany. The test can be taken at licensed test centres in about 80 different countries.


The examination results are assigned to one of three levels:


(a)TestDAF-Niveaustufe 5 (TDN 5- TestDAF level 5)

(b)TestDAF-Niveaustufe 4 (TDN 4-TestDAF level 4)

(c)TestDAF-Niveaustufe 3 (TDN 3-TestDAF level 3)


These are equivalent to levels B2.1 to C1.2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.


Which TestDAF level is apt for me to get admission in German University?

If you are able to secure TDN 4 in each subject then nothing stands in the way of your studies in Germany as far as language is concerned. A score of TDN 5 shows that you have a very good knowledge of German. However, each university in Germany has its own admission policy. So, it’s better to check the eligibility criteria for the university you are applying to.


How will TestDAF help me?

  • All German Universities recognise the TestDAF certificate. With a score of TDN 4 in all four subtests you will be able to get admission to an academic degree course, provided that the university of your choice accepts the other elements of your application. Admission for candidates whose scores are below TDN 4 is at the discretion of individual universities, depending on factors such as the course subject; type of degree awarded and course duration.
  • The TestDAF assesses the language skills necessary for study in Germany. The content and tasks of TestDAF are all related to academic, scientific and study-relevant topics.
  • The TestDAF assesses the four language skills separately (Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Written Production, Oral Production). The certificate shows four separate results, giving you a clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses in each skill.
  • You can sit the TestDAF in your home country and your certificate is sent directly to you.
