Preparing for the Passarelle final exam

The vocational Matura has become a popular alternative to a classic Gymnasium education. Have you successfully completed vocational school (BMS)? Congratulations! If you intend to study at a university or other institute of higher education in Switzerland, you will also have to pass the supplementary Passarelle exam.

Our courses are suitable as preparation for the Passarelle exam as well. They are designed for vocational school graduates who would like to optimally compliment their own preparatory efforts before the exam in order to face this challenge with confidence. Our prep lessons allow you to solidify and expand your knowledge and skills in mathematics and French. We work in small groups so that you always have the opportunity to ask questions and develop a sound understanding of the topic at hand.

Matura Certificate in Maths

 

Do these formulas look familiar? You’ve been working with them constantly for the past few years, but usually you were only tested on a certain subsection of mathematics. Soon you will have to apply all these formulas on the same day – it’s time for the Matura!

 

A good maths score has always been indicative of quick comprehension and high intelligence, and a Matura certificate with a good maths score shows that you are capable of above-average performance. It can open doors for you and make the text step towards success easier.

Many companies place great importance on having employees who can solve problems independently and clearly document their work. To find these employees, companies pay special attention to maths scores, which are a good reflection of the qualities "endurance, accuracy, and independence".

Matura French Preparation

French continues to play a significant role in Switzerland and has not been displaced by English. Good French skills are essential for a great career.

In our Matura prep course, we review all grammatical theory along with corresponding exercises, rédaction (text composition) and advantageous answers for the oral Matura.

This course can be taken up to one year before the Matura.

Maths at the University Level

Maths is in an integral part of many courses of study. It is often one of the most challenging subjects and requires a considerable amount of study time. Universities seek out those students who possess basic analytical skills and have demonstrated that they can succeed in this area.

The prerequisite for this is the Matura. Those who studied mathematics thoroughly in Gymnasium will have a much better chance of succeeding at university. It is extremely time-consuming to fill old knowledge gaps while having to digest so much new information at the same time.

Generally, it can be said: The time you invest in mathematics now is time you will have free to pursue other interests at university.

Some examples of majors that require mathematics:

  1. Practically all engineering and tech majors
  2. Economics (micro and macro)
  3. Psychology (statistics!)
  4. Sociology
  5. Chemistry
  6. Physics
  7. Biology
  8. Media and communication sciences
  9. And many more!

French

French is a Latin language and enables the study of additional world languages. Foreign language fluency is one of the key competencies for a successful career.
