Student or Learner
Should I say I have passed a test in german or a german test?
And the second part: I got an A on my german test or in my german test?

'test' is what a teacher might give periodically to assess whether students are progressing in their learning. An exam (examination) is more the 'test' given at the end of a course of study.
I got an A in German.
I got an A in my German exam. (the final exam)
I got an A on my German paper/test( 'test' if it's a written test)..
I got an A for my German essay/asssignment.
You touched it with a needle.
In the US, we'd get the A on the final exam as well as on a test. (At least where I've lived - there is so much regional variation on these things.)
It helped a lot. Thanks.
