  • Matura or
  • vocational matura; or
  • school-leaving examination (prior to 1 June 1995) under any four-year secondary school programme.

-

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical classes and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).
