Information about the German exam

aThe admission test takes place with the help of the onSET (= online placement test). You do not need computer skills. You only need to know how to use the keyboard and mouse. Everything else is automatic. The onSET contains eight excercises. Each excercise consists of a cloze text with exactly 20 gaps. There is a maximum of five minutes left for every cloze text. Overall, the test takes a maximum of 40 minutes.
