I appreciate the possibility of making an exam simulation before the real exam. Although the simulation was a part of my German course i.e. free, you can register for it too, the fees will be deducted from the exam price anyway!

If you are coming from another school, it is recommended to take an exam simulation text first. You could evaluate your abilities, get an estimated score and a recommendation from a tutor. If you get a positive results during the simulation, with a 95% probability you final ÖSD exam score will be even higher. Should you fail the exam, you might still give it a try, although we would suggest to take a crash course at least.

  • Listening

  • Writing
  • Speaking
