Gymnasium preparation in Zurich - Entrance exam 2020/2021

The gymnasium - Springboard for the future

As always, an excellent education is crucial for the professional future. At the gymnasium, pupils learn foreign languages as well as abstract thinking, which is more than ever necessary in a demanding profession.

Without specific exam preparation for the gymnasium the transfer is hardly possible. Even if the schools offer a gym preparation during two lessons per week in the new school year, this is usually not enough.


All our course materials are continuously updated and adapted to the latest teaching materials. The training material is prepared and compiled by us centrally, which is very time-consuming.
In the Lern-Forum teachers are employed who are exclusively responsible for the preparation of the course material. 

Thanks to the tightly managed courses, the students learn very efficiently and can close existing gaps and gain confidence in solving the tasks.

Preparation courses alongside the school 1 x per week

Preparation courses over a longer period of time guarantee a sustainable learning success. With our own learning material, which is specifically designed for the requirements of the exam, the students receive a complete preparation. All exam-relevant topics are repeated and taken in depth. 

The teachers can respond individually to the students and answer questions at any time.

Course material

For each course, we have compiled a comprehensive Lern-Forum course binder. These binders are continuously revised and always up to date with the latest subject knowledge.

Each student has their own binder with all exercises and the pertinent solutions printed on paper. Upon completion of the course, the student retains this binder, so that the student may continue to study and practice the material contained within.
