Registration Open for German Aptitude Test for Academic Studies (TestAS) at Kenyatta University

TestAS - Test für Ausländische Studenten Test for Academic Studies

TestAS – Test für Ausländische Studenten (Test for Academic Studies)

TestAS is a central standardised aptitude test for foreign students. TestAS gives prospective students information about their individual ranking compared to other applicants. With good results, they can improve their chances of being admitted for studies at a German university.

The TestAS certificate is recognised by German universities who have included it in their admission regulations. The weighting of the TestAS results, however, varies depending on the university. While TestAS is compulsory for some universities or subjects, it is optional for others. Some universities do not require TestAS at all. Please inquire at the university or faculty you are applying to if TestAS is considered for admission.

You will not find the predicates “passed” or “failed” on your certificate. There is no minimum score and thus no pass mark. The German universities will use the ranking lists which are based on the test results for the selection of applicants at their own discretion.

The participation is free of charge.
