Abstract: This paper investigates why TestDaF - the officially certified and recognized university entrance exam proofing sufficient knowledge of the German language which is comparable to TOEFL - is only insignificantly made use of by Japanese students in Japan intending to take up a study at universities in German speaking countries. On the other hand, there is an evident disparity regarding Japanese students outside Japan who outnumber their fellow-examinees back home more then ten times.
