I’m preparing…

The Euroexams include several specific task types borrowed from real life, which measure communication skills on a wider basis than the knowledge of abstract language forms. Thus preparation is useful and enjoyable – even though it requires hard and thorough work –, and you are guaranteed to use well the knowledge and skills you have acquired, before, during and after the exam.

Step 1: Get to know the exam

The Exam Types and Levels page gives you a clear and transparent description of the exam system, the different exam levels and exam types, so it is worth studying carefully. Experience says that the thorough knowledge of the types of tasks saves time for every candidate on the one hand, and accommodating the examiners’ expectations significantly improves your chances, on the other. 

Step 2: Try yourself out

You have the opportunity to do a free level tests at our exam venues and partners, but the safest way to measure where you are in the course of your preparation is to complete a mock exam at the appropriate level on your own (too), while keeping the time limits given for each task.

You can find complete sets of mock exam tasks with an answer key for evaluation on our Downloadable Practice Exams page. You can buy the preparatory coursebooks (Eurocity B2 and C1, Euroexpress B2) and testbooks (Practice Test Book B1, B2 and C1, Practice Test Book EuroPro B2 and Testbuch Euro B2) published by the Euroexam Centre in the e-Shop as well from at every Euroexam exam partner. Each testbook contains the complete material of 3 Euro/EuroPro exams in the printed format you will encounter in the real exam, complete with a full answer key. Naturally, you can download the audio materials free of charge, too.

Step 3: Practice, practice and practice more

From the above, you will know what else is to be done. If one or more of your practice tests do not go too well, you can sign up for an exam-preparation course offered by one of our official exam partner institutions.

Most definitely, one of our most effective tools to support your preparation is the free elearning exam preparation course available for everyone. Choose from among English and German B2, as well as English C1 courses, the one you need in order to maximize your chances. We launch the so-called 'Express online courses' over and over, always exactly 5 weeks before the date of a given exam. With this course type, you can not only develop your reading and listening comprehension abilities, but your writing and speaking skills as well. Register and give it a go, when the time comes.

Our Weekly Practice Tasks page helps systematic, individual preparation if you have limited amount of time, only in one sitting. Here you find selection of exam tasks every week to practice with in 10-15-minute chunks, and you can find the solutions soon to check your performance. 

What is more, we are on Facebook, with tips, suggestions, practice materials (articles, lists, games, videos, quizzes). We deliver, your practice, the floor is yours.

Develop your accuracy and vocabulary – although, the exams do not measure accuracy and vocabulary directly any more, they are still crucial elements of successful communication in a foreign language. As for the exams, we test these skills partly in the Speaking Test and partly in the Writing Test with the help of a more complex evaluation criteria. Yet, to best prepare for any of our exams, you can practise as much as you like with the exam-like sets of tasks on our specific accuracy and vocabulary page.

Step 4: Register in time

You can register online or in person at any Euroexam partner, as well as at the Euroexam Centre.

You can send us your registration form by post or by fax too.

In a way unique to Euroexam, you have the possibility to apply up to two weeks before the exam. However, if you do not leave it to the last minute, and apply at least 4 weeks before the exam, you can spare paying a special procedural fee.
