Hello Sir/Madam,

I need some information regarding German language A2 exam. I am doing A2 German language course from VHS because I have to submit A2 certificate to immigration office in Jan-2025 for further visa extension. My classes is ended in the mid of the July. Now I have planed to take A2 exam at the end of the month July-2024 or in august-2024. I heard from someone that there is no A2 exam, you have to take exam of B1 if you pass this exam you will receive B1 certificate, otherwise you will get A2 certificate. I want to know that, Is it right that there is no A2 exam? please give me your advice in this regard or can you share a link with me for A2 exam it could be telc or goethe , so that I would fix an appointment. waiting your answer

Best regards,

Wasim Ahmad

Dear Wasim Ahmad,

Welcome back to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question.

If I remember correctly from one of your last posts, you are currently holding a residence permit according to section 104c ("Chancen-Aufenthaltsrecht"), correct? You are right, in order to receive the residence permit according to section 25b after 18 months, you need to prove that you speak German on A2 level (spoken skills, not necessarily writing/reading skills). There are exams, as you mentioned, which test you up to B1 and may certify an A2 level as well - according to your performance. But there should be A2 exams as well. I made a quick research and found some telc exams offered by different organisations/institutions (for example in Bamberg or Aachen).

It is good that you already take care of it since I heard that in some areas it is really difficult to find a place and waiting lists can be long (there are in general not enough language courses and exams - especially after the introduction of the "Chancen-Aufenthaltsrecht"). Maybe you can share your approximate location with us, so we can support you with searching for some options in your area.

All the best,
