I'm not taking the exams this year, but I live in Heidelberg, so if you need tips on where to stay or eat or whatever, just let me know.

Hi,
my language combination is Italian A, English B, and German C. To get in at Heidelberg I'd have to turn my German C into a German B - not an easy task - and downgrade English B to a C - which would be a shame really. On the other hand I think it would be a good thing for me to study in Germany as I would have the opportunity to really improve my German. What language combination do you have? What was the exam like?

Hi Sofia,
I think it is a shame that you can't have German C here, yes, it has to be a B. And I would personally not want to downgrade my EN into a C, that would be a pity, and I don't know how good your German is/how quick it can become a B, and whether you absolutely want to study in Germany, but I would strongly advise you to apply to other schools too, the ones that accept your combination.
The Heidelberg exam was not difficult at all (I have taken other ones too, so I can compare). In fact, it is not hard to get in, but the quality of education is kind of disappointing at this point. It used to be good and many Heidelberg grads work for the EU (just as an example), but I think they used to be good, and it is no longer the case.
If you wanna know more, send me a pm, so I can tell you in detail. I don't know anyone else on the forum who is super interested in knowing about Heidelberg.
Thanks

Actually, since I live right in Heidelberg, I was planning on applying there this year as well, so that would be at least 2 of us who are interested. So you really think they've gone downhill? Would you mind explaining what led you to that conclusion?
