Hi.

I would like to know how should I go about getting the required language certification in German?
I am earning the language only through Rocket Language. 
Vielen Dank.

Hallo VidyaMS,

Thank you for your question. It depends on what you need the certification for e.g. university entrance , residence permit/visa etc. There are a few different educational institutions offering exams for German language certificates such as the Certificate of a Goethe-Institute Test or the TestDaF Certificate. 

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions I am happy to help!

Grüße

Hallo Julia .

My objective for the certificate is not for university , visa ...but to know my strength of the language and also to tell others what level I am at .
So if I were to take TestDaf or Certificate of a Goethe-Institute Test , I would like to know besides Rocket German , do I need any other learning material ? I would start from the beginners level . 

Vielen Dank.

I completed all three levels of Rocket German and then I started some lessons with a German teacher on iTalki. She said that I was a solid A2 working towards B1.
However I had also completed the Deutche Welle Nicos Weg course which has three levels A1, A2 and B1.

It covers similar material to Rocket German but with a completely different approach. It appears to be aimed at immigrants wanting to learn German.

Maybe that gives an Idea?

Hallo VidyaMS und sfpugh,

there is also a forum thread on this which you might find quite helpful. It talks about the different levels, certificates as well as how to measure your own language proficiency:

Hallo sfpugh.

Ich mag deine Antwort. Danke.
I am yet currently at Level 1 . So no where near the language coverage you have done .
Again , thanks for the mention of Deutche Welle Nicos Weg course. 
Interesting to see how and where this journey goes. 
Vielen Dank.
