Normally German universities do not ask for entrance examination. The only requirement is that you need to provide adequate educational background.
In several subjects the number of available study places is not sufficient as compared to number of applicants. Therefore the selection process includes the grade point average of the secondary school leaving certificate which plays a decisive role.
In German universities a specific percentage of seats are reserved for the applicants from abroad. In medicine around 6% is reserved and in other degree courses 8% is reserved for foreign applicants.
Foreigners from European countries are treated as German applicants and so they have to take part in an entry test for a study place in medical course. This test is held once a year in November.
