Gymnasium Admission Canton Zurich (rules from 2020)

https://m.tagesanzeiger.ch/articles/...5c3714de000001

Admission to Gymnasium
New rules in Canton Zurich
as of 2020.

This new procedure is to standardise how exams and how previously attained course-marks are weighted, when assessing whether a pupil will be admitted to Gymnasium (the academic stream of secondary/high-school, to gain a university-entrance level school-leaving certificate).

Re: Gymnasium Admission Canton Zurich (rules from 2020)

Thanks for this information, I have a child in 1st Sek so it's good to know about the changes. I just read the article and saw that the regulations come into force into August 2020, so the gymi exams for next year in March will use the old criteria.


The pass mark for Langzeit gymi will be raised from 4.5 to 4.75, presumably to reduce the number of students passing the test. It also sounds as though it might be harder to get into Kurzgymi - the pass mark will be raised from 4.0 to 4.75 (but will be 50% based on school grades) and there will be no oral exams for borderline students.
