For participation in the sports aptitude test at the University of Kassel, it is highly recommended to practice the various test items beforehand and to prepare for the specific requirements. For specific preparation, the Institute of Sport and Sport Science offers video recordings on the exact test structure, performance and performance requirements. These video recordings, as well as the template "Contents, Performance Requirements and Scoring Standards", have proven to be very helpful for the participants of the sports test.

The practice dates are organized by our student council. On these days you can practice the individual test items under guidance and get help and feedback from our sports students.
