Gymi prep with modular learning

Practice Materials

Mathematics

The math practice materials consist of 6 loose-leaf binders, which are structured as follows:

  1. Introductory exercises
  2. Practice problems of increasing difficulty
  3. Exam questions from previous years

The practice problems are arranged so that there is enough space to conveniently solve each problem directly in the loose-leaf binder.

The lead author, Bilal Yilmaz, is a math teacher and taught at the Hottingen Kantonsschule.

He wrote the entrance exam for IT school (IMS) and was an examiner for the short-track Gymi oral entrance exam.

German

The German course is clearly organised and the individual topics for the entrance exam build on each other.

French

The preparation binder for French is new. The author, Sarah Frank, is an experienced French teacher who taught for many years at the Küsnacht Gymnasium.

French is part of the 2020 entrance exam. It will be dropped from the exam beginning in 2021.

Visual learning

More and more students these days are visual learners. The learn most effectively and efficiently when the material is presented in a visual manner. This dimension is often neglected at school. Teachers either explain topics verbally or give the students texts to read and learn from. These methods do not take advantage of the opportunities for visual learning.

Essay Writing

Since the German grade counts for 40%in the long-term gymnasium entrance exam, linguistic expression, text interpretation and grammar are more important than ever.

In our courses, we regularly write essays that are corrected, assessed and graded by a specialized team.
