The Delta Exam is a placement test. Passing it allows students with certificates of aptitude for either a short-course or subject-specific higher education to take up wished-for studies in a subject area or at an institution of higher learning that these qualification types exclude.
The Delta Exam is centrally administered at the University of Mannheim once a year in May (application window: March). You can see exactly what the Delta Exam looks like and how to register for it on the University of Mannheim website [de].
