HOME > About TestAS
TestAS is a central standardised scholastic aptitude test which measures intellectual abilities particularly important for university studies.
TestAS is intended for international study applicants planning to do undergraduate studies at German universities.
What are the benefits of TestAS?
Please inquire at the website or the International Office of the university you are applying to as to wether TestAS is one of the admission requirements for your chosen field of study.
One test, two formats
The paper-based TestAS was developed by ITB Consulting GmbH and is offered by the Gesellschaft für Akademische Studienvorbereitung und Testentwicklung e. V. (Society for Academic Study Preparation and Test Development, a Registered Association).
The digital TestAS will be administered for the first time on June 22, 2022. This test is processed – as the paper-based version – in a test centre, but on the computer. For this purpose, new items have been developed, reviewed and optimized for digital presentation and editing. The development was done in cooperation with the universities of Ulm and Kassel.
The skills tested are exactly the same in both formats. The digital TestAS therefore places the same demands on participants as the paper-based TestAS. As an advantage of the digital version, the results will be available faster.
