I'm in a bit of a malaise here. I'm German/American and have spent over six years of my life in the United States and lived in the UK for two years.
Fairly recently, I moved to Germany, due to work, and completed my A levels as a private candidate, hoping to secure a place at uni to read law.
Now all unis I've spoken to stated that they'd expect me to sit the TOEFL or the IELTS, due to my current country of residence and citizenship, in order to prove my English skills (which in my opinion is a bit silly, after all I took the A levels which quite obviously are in English).
Passing it really isn't the issue here, as I was raised bilingually and thus am a native speaker. However, looking at the price tag of either test was a bit daunting, as both are in the range of 200 Euros.
Does anyone know of a way to get around the IELTS/TOEFL?
