About TestAS

TestAS is a standardized scholastic aptitude test for foreign students from non-EU countries who are planning to do undergraduate studies at a German university. Universities use TestAS to select and admit students who best fulfil their requirements. About 40 universities already use TestAS as an additional selection criterion.

You cannot fail the TestAS test, but you can reach certain scores (on a classification scale up to 130 points). Depending on the university, a certain minimum number of points is required.
