As at all Hamburg secondary schools, a class test (in the subjects German, Mathematics and English) as well as an oral examination in at least two of the subjects mentioned (including English) are used in the 10th grade of our secondary school to determine whether the requirements of the educational plans have been met. Students who pass this examination are transferred to the study level and have at the same time obtained the MSA (the intermediate school-leaving certificate) through this transfer.

    This is followed by two years of the upper secondary level (grades 11 and 12), which is completed with the Abitur examination (general qualification for university entrance).
