FMS Preparation

FMS Preparation Courses in Zurich

Prepare for the FMS entrance exam in small groups.

After the 3rd grade of secondary school opens up further education: the secondary technical school FMS.
The Entrance examination includes the subjects Mathematics, German and French (the examination year 2022).

In groups of 3 to 8 students, the school material is systematically repeated with the help of a clear course folder and consolidated with exercises. Afterward, old entrance exams of the FMS are solved and discussed in detail. 

Only when the required secondary school material has been mastered can the student recall the grammar of the languages as well as the theory of Mathematics and answer the exam questions.

We learn and repeat all topics without gaps.




The course materials are adapted to the current requirements every year. We practice for the entrance exam, and at the same time, the students learn an efficient working technique so that they can solve the tasks independently.

For whom is FMS suitable?

What is the difference between Gymnasium and Technical school FMS?

Many young people believe they have a choice between the gymnasium and vocational training.
The apprenticeship fulfills the need for practice. Gymnasium students feel the desire for theory.

Far too little known, however, is a type of school that combines both: the Secondary technical school FMS. 
The Secondary technical school offers an in-depth general education (in this respect it is similar to the Gymnasium) and combines this with professional practice (in this respect it is similar to a vocational apprenticeship).
This is because internships and job-specific instruction are an integral part of the entire school period at the FMS.
Unlike commercial or IT secondary schools, which are part of basic vocational training, FMS students graduate with a specialized baccalaureate after a longer internship and additional instruction in social and pedagogical areas. The degree gives access to certain bachelor's degree programs at universities of applied sciences or teacher training colleges.
With the Passarellen examination, university colleges are also open to graduates.
