Exam Content

Besides three conversations about everyday topics, different tasks for reading comprehension, listening comprehension and written production have to be completed. The correct command of the Norwegian language will have an important influence on the assessment.

Most of the exam is done on a computer. There is a so-called “forprøve” which will not count towards the final result, but which will select tasks for your appropriate level. So depending on how you perform during the forprøve, you will get to the main exam on the level A2, B1, or B2.

The C1 Norskprøve is a separate exam which you can only take at this level.
