If you retake a failed exam, you can have a passed partial result (written or oral part) of a previous exam credited to you. You then do not need to retake the corresponding part of the exam. The result will be transferred to your new exam result. Previous results can only be credited for the same exam (B1 for B1, B2 for B2, etc.). Crediting C1 for C1 Hochschule (College) or vice versa is not possible.
Crediting is only possible within twelve months after taking the first exam (date of issue of the result sheet) and must be indicated when registering for your exam.
Unfortunately, partial results from previous exams cannot be credited for the B1-B2 Pflege (Healthcare) and B2-C1 Medizin (Medicine) as well as B1-B2 Beruf (Professional) and B2-C1 Beruf (Professional) exams.
