There are two possible results in the Test in Norwegian C1 – higher academic level:

  • C1
  • Not passed

You cannot be awarded B2, B1, A2 or A1 in this test. If you wish to be assessed at varying levels below C1, we recommend you take the test in Norwegian at levels A1 – B2 instead.

If you are registered with a Norwegian personal identification number (fødselsnummer), you can use ID-porten to log in to the Diploma Registry.  

In the Diploma Registry you can see your last and best results from the Norwegian Language test, Social Studies test, and the Citizenship test. You can also share your results with others in a safe and secure way. 

What is the Diploma Registry? 

The Diploma Registry is a secure service you can use to share your results from your tests, and other exams. You can use the Diploma Registry to send a link with your results to, for example, educational centres or employers. You log in to the service through ID-porten, using MinID, BankID on mobil, BankID, Buypass or Commfides. 

Are you applying for higher education? 

If you are applying for higher education, you will need to send the link to yourself and download the signed PDF-document. You will then need to upload this document to Samorda opptak’s website when you are applying. 

Are your results not visible in the Diploma Registry? 

If you cannot see your results in the Diploma Registry, even though your personal identification number is registered in Skills Norway’s test platform, you will have to contact your test centre.

The test centre can check if your personal number is registered to the candidate number you used to take the test. If you are not registered with your personal number, you will not be able to see your results in the Diploma Registry, and you will have to use the test certificate you have received in the post from the test centre. 

Is it the same as Min side? 

No, the Diploma Registry is not the same as Min side. Min side only shows your results for Skills Norway’s tests, it cannot be used to share your results others. 

You must register an email address to have access to Min side. On Min side, you can see the results of your tests when they are released, and you can get more information about the assessment of the test. You can also check and change your contact information here.  

If you are unable to log in, contact the test centre.  

The test certificate states what level you have achieved. Do you need a new test certificate? In such case, you must contact the test centre and ask for a copy of the test certificate

Everyone who applies for admission to higher education must meet Norwegian language requirements.

If you are going to apply for admission to higher education, you can use the results of your test in Norwegian to document your Norwegian language skills.

The Norwegian language requirement for admission to higher education is currently minimum B2 in all four skills of the Test in Norwegian (reading comprehension, listening comprehension, written production and oral communication). This means that Test in Norwegian (norskprøven) with the result B2 in all four parts of the test is sufficient.

The Test in Norwegian C1 – higher academic level will also meet the requirement for admission to higher education. The test at C1 level consists of two parts, and each part measures two skills. A result of «C1» for both parts of the test means that you have achieved C1 level in all four skills.

If you have achieved C1 as a result for just one of the parts, you have achieved C1 level in two skills. B2 level from norskprøven in the two other skills is then needed to meet the requirements of minimum B2 level in all four skills.
