The Bergenstest is a proficiency test in Norwegian at levels B2 and C1 prepared by the Norsk Språktest, a joint initiative between the University of Bergen and the Folkeuniversitetet, for people seeking higher education in Norway, employees who must document their competence in the Norwegian language, or those who may want to test their understanding of the Norwegian language.
