Practice & Course Materials
We are well-equipped with supplementary exercises and solutions for in-depth studying, old Gymnasium exams and the latest teaching materials. The course folder is revised each year and adapted to the newest requirements.
Students receive practice materials that they are not familiar with yet. The old exams (links) are used only in the last third of the exam preparation. Prior to working with old exams, we practice and solidify the entire exam material through exercises with proven effects.
Students also receive an overview of each topic as well as an explanation for later reference.
Links to old exams and free practice materials.
Now students can also prepare independently with our Lern-Forum study materials. Our structured math books for self-study were developed by a Swiss Gymnasium teacher and can be found in our book shop.
The learning objectives are defined by the official decisions of the Canton of Zürich. There is often a gap between what has been covered in class at school and what is required by the entrance exam (especially in maths). It is for this reason that thorough preparation for the exam is so important.;
We focus not on rote memorisation but on applying learned concepts.
Gymnasium exam prep in small groups
With our well-organized course folder, we systematically review and solidify school material through practice problems in groups of 3 to 8 students. We have excellent training and course materials to match the new curriculum (especially in French and mathematics).
After the review, we then look at previous entrance exams and discuss these in detail.
All courses run until March 2020.
We practice for the entrance exam while students also learn efficient strategies to solve the problems independently.
We have a large selection of supplementary exercises, previous exams and the latest teaching materials.
