Exam preparation - Vocational school (BMS)

BMS entrance exam – targeted preparation

for the entrance exam to BMS

We offer high quality prep courses specifically for vocational school (Berufsmittelschule or BMS). There are various specializations (technical, commercial, business, health, design).

Since the Examination Committee decided to introduce a uniform exam for students of all specializations in 2015, we have completely revised our courses and now offer a single course for all specialisations that is tailored exactly to the new exam.

How are scores calculated?

New: As of 2015, all specialisations take the same exam!

Students have passed the exam if their average score is at least a 4. The subject scores are weighted as follows:

Subject   Technical Profile Commercial and Social-Health Profile Business BMS (incl. geometry)
German   2 2 2
English   1 1 1
French   1 1 1
Maths   4 2 2
         
Total   8 6 6

A challenge during the apprenticeship

BMS challenges students. Students must be well organized in order to meet the study requirements. This has also led to the BMS having a very good reputation and its graduates being highly desired in the job market.
