Re: Which German Language Test to Take?

View Post
If it's just to get your C permit then I recommend the KDE test from Canton Zurich which satisfies the requirements of the Migrationsamt for EU citizens. Surprisingly straight forward and results inside 48 hrs. Cost CHF250 to sit.

A2 Reading & Writing and B1 Listening & Speaking. You need 60% overall and can flunk one part if you have a bad day e.g. writing and still pass overall. Same idea as outlined above by @blueangel for TELC

It's much more focused on everyday situations and they're not anal about perfect grammar et al. However, it has limited standing outside of Switzerland.
Many thanks. Will look. Btw I need B1 in all sections for the (early) C permit.
