TM-BASE Demo Test

Just like the real test, the demo test contains 90 exercises. It partially consists of exercises that were already used in the TM-BASE. Before processing of the demo test, you should download and print the concept paper as this includes processing aids for the first group of exercises. You may write down notes on the empty pages of the concept paper. During the real test, the amount of the concept paper will be the same as with the demo test.

Below you will find the link to the demo test. Please use a recent version of Internet Explorer or Firefox, and please deactivate the pop-up blockers. The annexe of an exercise always states the letter of the correct answer so that you may look up the correct answer for each exercise. The letter A always refers to the uppermost answer, B to the second answer from above etc.

The real test is designed so that about the half of the exercises will be solved on average. The result of the demo test does not allow for drawing any conclusions on your chances in the real test. This is because you are not very familiar with the types of exercises when processing the demo test; the difficulty of the demo test may also deviate from the difficulty of the real test (we do not provide of any standards as a part of the demo test exercises has not been used with your target group yet).





Note: If you wish to work on the demo test at different times, it might be necessary to clear your browser cache and then restart your browser before you can restart the demo test.
