You have adequate knowledge if you have
- passed Norwegian Test 2 or 3 (Norskprøve 2 or 3), written and oral tests, or the Bergen Test, or passed all the four parts of the Norwegian language test at minimum A2 level: oral, listening, reading and written presentation, or
- completed ordinary tuition in Norwegian or Sami in primary/lower secondary school or upper secondary school and been given a final assessment grade, or
- completed Norwegian or Sami studies at a university or university college in Norway or abroad corresponding to 30 credits, or
