Students in grade 6, will receive a formal prognosis of achievement for Secondary School (German: Gymnasium) at the end of first term. A positive prognosis will lead to a one year trial period in grade 7. A successful trial period will in turn lead to a preliminary examination – Mittlerer Schulabschluss (MSA) – at the end of grade 10. After having achieved the MSA, BCS students graduate grade 12 with the IB Diploma and the German Abitur – both leading to a matriculation standard.
