  • Higher grade subjects require 40% for a pass.
  • Standard grade subjects count out of 300 and are based to a great degree on reproducing knowledge.
  • Standard grade subjects require 33,3% for a pass.
  • One needs the following subject combination for matriculation exemption:
  • Two official languages, both on HG.
  • Two more subjects on HG, both from groups other than the languages
