Taking a preparatory course is not mandatory. However, our experience shows that the chances of passing the telc exam are significantly higher after a preparatory course. In any case, you should have already completed the relevant level and familiarized yourself with the exam format. On telc.net there are practice tests, some of which are free of charge, and important information about the structure of the exam. If you cannot / do not want to attend a preparation course at Horizonte, we strongly recommend that you prepare for the exam on your own.

The assessment of the exam is carried out by telc gGmbH and can take between 3-5 weeks (in exceptional cases longer). As soon as we receive the test results, we will inform you by email. The certificates / result sheets can then be picked up personally from Horizonte or sent by post for an additional charge.
If you have only passed one part of the exam, i.e. the oral or written part of the exam, you can have the result credited to the next exam.
