Attention Freshmen!
Please do not confuse the OOPT with the "Einstufungstest" from the "Sprachenzentrum"!  Thank you for your attention.
  • You must take the test before you begin your studies. The language test is a diagnostic tool which is a prerequisite for you attending the Language Skills I module.
  • You must pass the diagnostic test with 64 out of 120 points (CEFR level B2) to begin your first English language module.
  • If you score below 64 points, you are required to take undefinedRemedial Language Skills. In addition, you may be required to schedule a counselling appointment with your lecturer. Should this be the case, you will be duly informed.
  • Should you fail the OOPT, you will have the possibility to take the test during the following semester. The test usually takes place in March and October.
  • Please sign up online via undefinedHIS-LSF starting the 12th of August 2017. Registrations for the OOPT end on the 12th of September 2017. (undefinedBelegen von Seminaren im LSF)

  • Please note that the tests have to be performed in the computer-rooms of the ZIM (Building 25.41)
  • Students with disabilities should get in touch with the undefinedStudents' Office  of the English Department before signing up via HIS-LSF. We will of course gladly assist you if necessary, but please inform us beforehand.

About the OOPT

The OOPT is a completely computer-based test. 

  • The test consists of around 45 questions divided up in two parts.
  • The first part (Use of English) only contains written British English and tests grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension. The tasks are various multiple-choice questions and to fill in some blanks in a text.
  • The second part (Listening) contains audio samples with 50% British accents and 50% American accents and tests listening comprehension with multiple-choice questions.
  • Both the Use of English and the Listening section set a strong focus on testing your active vocabulary, including idioms and common phrasings.

There are three restrictions you should keep in mind while you are taking the test:

  • After you answered a question, you cannot go back to make changes.
  • The audio-clips in the listening comprehension section can only be played twice.
  • The overall testing time is limited to 60 minutes.
