Integration exams

Update: 13 January 2021

Can I take integration exams in December of 2020 and January of 2021?

No, you cant. The exam locations are closed from 16 December until 8 February.

I already registered for an exam, but it was cancelled. What should I do?

Did you register for an exam, but were you unable to take it because of the coronavirus (COVID-19)? DUO will send you a letter shortly. You don’t need to pay for the new exam.

Do I need to wear a face mask during the exam?

Yes, we strongly advise you to wear a face mask at the exam location. Before and after the exam, but also during the exam. Only take off your face mask during the Speaking exam.

What rules do I need to comply with during the exam?

DUO wants to offer everybody a safe exam. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), there are some extra rules:

  • If you are ill or have a cold, you cannot take the exam. Cancel your exam before it starts.
  • Wear a face mask at the exam location. Only take off your face mask during the Speaking exam.
  • Sneeze and cough into your elbow.
  • Make sure you are present 30 minutes before the exam.
  • Come to the exam alone. Other people need to wait outside the building.
