Exams and diplomas

Questions about exams, diplomas and corona (COVID-19).

Integration exams

Update: 19 May 2020

Can I still take an integration exam?

No, you can’t. All exams up to 14 June have been cancelled. All DUO exam locations are closed. Did you register for an integration exam? DUO will arrange a new exam for you. You don’t need to pay for the new exam.

Can I register for a later exam?

No, at the moment you can’t register for an exam in Mijn Inburgering. As soon as you can register for exams again, you’ll read so on inburgeren.nl.

NT2 state exam

When will the NT2 state exams take place again?

From 15 June 2020 the NT2 state exams will gradually be resumed. Candidates who registered for an exam in March, April, or May will get priority when allocating exam places. They will receive a notice about this from DUO. At the exam locations, guidelines from the RIVM (the national institute for public health and environment) will be followed, so the exams can take place safely. This also means that fewer candidates can take part per sitting, due to social distancing rules.

Changes to exam schedule

The schedule for the NT2 state exams has been changed. The new schedule is available at staatsexamensnt2.nl. Candidates that have already registered, get to take their exams first. All mbo institutes (secondary vocational education), hbo institutes (higher vocational education) and universities have agreed that students will get until 1 January 2021 to obtain their NT2 state exam diploma.


You can’t register for an exam yet. As soon as new exam dates are available, you will find them on staatsexamensnt2.nl, Facebook and this website.


If you have any questions about registering for an exam, please contact our NT2 department. You can reach us by email on nt2@duo.nl, or by phone on 050 599 89 33 (choose option 1).


I passed. Can I pick up my integration diploma?

No, you can’t pick up your diploma. All exam locations are closed up to 14 June 2020. That is why DUO will temporarily mail your diploma via registered post.
