STAATSEXAMENS NT2 – Staatsexamen I & II

(see Englih version below)


Algemene informatie:

Er zijn 2 programma’s: Staatsexamen I (ERK niveau B1) is vereist voor toelating tot het MBO. Met het Staatsexamen II diploma (ERK niveau B2) kunt u naar het HBO of de Universiteit. Al naar gelang uw onderwijsachtergrond kiest u voor één van deze programma’s.

U doet examen in de onderdelen lezen, schrijven, spreken en luisteren. Vaak hebben kandidaten al een paar onderdelen behaald, maar blijkt het moeilijk om bijvoorbeeld voor spreken en/of schrijven te slagen. Dan is een training op maat noodzakelijk om uiteindelijk in het bezit te komen van het felbegeerde diploma.

Voor elk geslaagd onderdeel krijgt men een certificaat. Zijn alle vier de onderdelen behaald dan kan het diploma worden aangevraagd. U moet zichzelf opgeven via de website van het DUO. U moet zich 6 weken van te voren opgeven, dus als u eind juli examen wilt doen, moet u zich begin juni aanmelden. U kunt zich het hele jaar door aanmelden. De examens kosten €45,- per onderdeel, dus €180,- in totaal. Zowel de aanmelding als de betaling dient u zelf te regelen. Op de website van het College voor Toetsen en Examens vindt u de examenlocaties.


Staatsexamentraining bij Altha Lingua:

De training wordt gegeven door een gecertificeerd docent NT2, die tevens beoordelaar Staatsexamens is. Zij is uitstekend op de hoogte van de eisen waaraan een kandidaat moet voldoen. Bij elke training wordt er gewerkt aan uitbreiding van de woordenschat en geoefend met synoniemen. Voor schrijven is vooral spelling en grammatica van belang en bij spreken uitspraak, grammatica en tempo. Er wordt gewerkt met materiaal uit verschillende boeken die voorbereiden op het Staatsexamen en er zijn oefenexamens beschikbaar.


Staatsexamens en inburgering.

Kandidaten die inburgeringsplichtig zijn, krijgen vrijstelling voor het inburgeringsexamen indien ze geslaagd zijn voor het Staatsexamen. Kandidaten die na 1 januari 2015 in Nederland zijn gekomen, moeten ook een toets KNM afleggen (Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij).


                Information about Staatsexamen NT2 – Staatsexamen I and II


General information:

There are 2 different levels available: Staatsexamen I (ERK level B1) required for admittance to an MBO course, and Staatsexamen II (ERK level B2) diploma that permits entry to University or a HBO course. Depending on your previous education you can either opt for Staatsexamen I or II.

Reading, listening, writing and speaking are all part of the exam. It’s quite common that candidates do not pass all 4 parts in one go. Many people find the writing and/or speaking part(s) particularly difficult. A custom made training course is, therefore, necessary in order to obtain the coveted diploma.

For every part of the exam you pass, you will receive a certificate. If you pass all the parts then you will receive a diploma. You have to register for the exam on the DUO website. You need to register 6 weeks in advance e.g. in order to do the exam at the end of July, you have to register at the beginning of June. You can apply throughout the year. The exam fee is € 180 in total, €45 for each part. You need to arrange both registration and payment yourself. You will find the exam locations on the website (College voor Toetsen en Examens).


Staatsexamentraining at Altha Lingua

The training course will be given by a qualified NT2 teacher who is also a Staatsexamens assessor. She knows exactly what is required in order to pass the exam. In every lesson particular attention will be paid to expanding the general vocabulary and use of synonyms. Spelling and grammar will be of particular importance for improving writing skills, while pronunciation, grammar and fluency for developing speaking skills. Past exams papers will be available as well as exercises from various books. We will ensure you are well prepared for the exam.


Staatsexamen and Inburgering

Candidates obliged to do the Inburgering exam will be exempt if they pass the Staatsexamen. Candidates who arrived in the Netherlands after the 1st of January 2015 also have to do a KNM test. (Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij; Knowledge of the Dutch Society.)
