Trial period support in Gymnasium

Gymnasium trial period courses support students during their first six months at the Gymnasium. During this time, the school wants to find out whether the students meet the required performance and how they cope with the learning workload at the Gymnasium. For the school, this selection process has the advantage that students have to prove themselves over a longer period of time.

Over the period of half a year, a student can be better assessed than only on the basis of a Gymnasium examination of several hours. The trial period should not be taken lightly, because it ultimately decides on the final admission to the respective school. Trial period accompaniment in the Gymnasium can be a very useful help to pass the probationary period.

Why a trial period accompaniment?

After the summer vacations, the change to high school is coming up, and you are afraid that your child is in for a problematic time? Your concerns are not unfounded, but they don't have to worry too much either. Many other parents feel the same way you do because, for most students, the start of trial Gymnasium is a jump into the deep end.

Young people do not always manage to summon up the necessary energy for learning. As a result, it's easy for them to develop gaps or insecurities in one subject or another. Sometimes, however, students without probationary support in high school simply don't find access to certain subjects, or they simply miss out on getting started in a new subject.

The many new subjects and courses are one of the reasons for this. In addition, a tremendous learning speed is also expected. As a rule of thumb, a child must continue to put in the same amount of effort as he or she did before the entrance exam in order to pass the probationary period in high school. In order for your child to meet these requirements and cope well with them, trial gymnasium courses have been created.

What Gymnasium Trial Courses Offer

Gymnasium | BMS probationary period courses and trial period support in the Gymnasium ensure that learning is tackled as intensively as necessary. Because high school teachers usually don't take much time to devote to each student individually, such support is worth its weight in gold. In addition, math teachers, for example, are often poor pedagogues and dialectical, but subjects like math are particularly challenging and in need of explanation.

Parents often cannot provide the necessary support, and classmates are also hardly able to help because of their own problems. This is the moment when temporary support through regular coaching and repetition courses in the form of trial support in gymnasium school ensures that the learning material is understood.

In our Gymnasium rehearsal courses, the focus is always on promoting subject-specific skills. In order to achieve the greatest possible learning effect, tips on individual learning and working techniques are incorporated, which also enable students to learn independently. Above all, the aim is to shape learning efficiently together with the students.

Pass gymnasium of trial period

Of course, the trial period is not a perfect measuring tool for a high school student's performance. However, it is a fact that according to statistics, one out of five students does not successfully pass the trial period in high school. In view of this fact, professional support through gymnasium trial period courses - in the subjects where it is needed - makes perfect sense.

Do you think your child might have a hard time in high school without probationary period support because he or she already has weaknesses in individual subjects? Our tailor-made gymnasium trial period courses support your child before and after the transition to the gymnasium. The school material is discussed again and deepened. Questions can be clarified and if gaps are identifiable, these are plugged specifically.

To support your child with any initial difficulties at the new school, gymnasium trial period courses offer a proven, for each exam-relevant subject specially compiled collection of various learning and practice materials, so that targeted support and optimal preparation are guaranteed.

  • Latein
  • Französisch
  • Mathematik
  • Englisch


Latin is obligatory in the long-term gymnasium and takes up a lot of time.

Poor grades in this subject unsettle the students. Many begin to doubt themselves and ask themselves whether the gymnasium is the right school level. In the subject Latin one has to bite the bullet and try to develop an interest in historical contexts and ancient languages.

In our autumn holiday course we repeat the lessons and deepen grammar and vocabulary. In this way the student should understand the basic structure of the language.

Low grades in French? This is mainly due to a lack of joy in the French language as well as wrong study techniques. It isn't enough to bone up on vocabulary; students must understand sentence structure as well as grammar. It's important that grades improve after the holidays and a French course is the best way to attain better grades.

Gymnasium level mathematics isn't easy for everyone. Students start learning set theory, number systems, terms and fractions. This is very much beyond the arithmetic learnt in primary school. Both in secondary and in the gymnasium, students keep theory notebooks and deepen their knowledge with exercise sheets - often without a textbook.

We repeat and practice with additional exercises.

The English language is more important than ever before. Students start learning English in their second grade, so English is now included from the first year of long-track Gymnasium.

As students now learn 3 foreign languages simultaneously, we have started English lessons during the probationary period. We focus on repetition and strengthening grammar skills.
