German language proficiency test (DSH)

The DSH exam consists of a written part (four sub-tests) and an oral part. In both parts you can use a monolingual dictionary (German-German). However, the ISZ Saar cannot provide you with a dictionary.

For the DSH is valid:
You have passed the examination if you have achieved at least 67% of the required performance in both the written and the oral examination. For a performance of 67% to 81% you will receive a DSH 2 certificate, for a performance of 82% and more a DSH 3 certificate.

For a pass mark of 57% to 66% they receive a DSH 1 certificate, which does not, however, entitle them to study at Saarland University.
