PREPARATION FOR THE TEST

Prepare yourself using the information on this website and the demo test to familiarize yourself with the requirements.

PROCESSING TIPS

  • Allocate the processing time well: Work uniformly and carefully, but still quickly.
  • Do not spend too much time on tasks that you find extremely difficult or unusual.
  • In case of doubt you should guess – no negative points for wrong answers.

TEST EXECUTION

Test time plus registration and admittance takes approximately 4 hours.

Admittance will only be granted after presentation of a valid official photo identification and the test invitation letter.

FORBIDDEN BEHAVIOUR

In aptitude tests for special fields of studies it is of decisive importance that all participants are subject to the same working conditions, i.e. that all participants stick to the same rules and no one takes an advantage at the expense of the other participants.

TEST REPORTS

The number of correct answers is compared to the performance of all other participants. Wrong answers and non-processed exercises are not considered. A standard value of 100 corresponds to an average performance.
