Exam Format and Grading

The telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule exam consists of a written section and an oral section. The written section is 3 hours and 40 minutes in duration (including a 20 minute break) and contains reading, language elements, listening comprehension, and written expression tasks. The oral exam is 16 minutes long (after a preparation phase of 20 minutes) and will take place either on the same day as the written exam or on a separate day.

A sample exam offered by telc gives examinees a detailed impression.

When a minimum of 60% of the possible maximum number of points in both the written and oral sections are achieved, the exam is deemed passed.

The exam is corrected by telc within 4–6 weeks. We will inform you as soon as the results are ready to be picked up at our office.

    Important information regarding the crediting of examination parts that have already been passed:

    telc examinations must generally be taken in full. However, in certain cases it is possible to retake a failed part of the exam: If you have taken the telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule exam in the past 12 months and passed either the written or the oral part of the exam, it is possible to have this partial result credited and retake the other part of the exam. For the overall assessment, it will always be the last examination result achieved in the respective partial examination that counts.
    If you wish to receive credit for a part of the exam that you passed last year, you must explicitly state this when you register. You will not have the chance to request crediting of partial examination results at a later date. Details can be found in the telc examination regulations, p. 13-16, §7,3.

    Please note:
    The crediting of an exam part must be requested at the examination center directly when registering for the examination (§7 p. 3 telc examination regulations). At a later point of time, the consideration of a request for crediting will not be possible.
