Senior High study options
German students finish their middle highschool year at Year 10 (F.4) and prepare for University entrance exam. At this stage they are allow to choose study path which suits them, either focusing on Abitur curriculum (German A-level) or IB curriculum, an international English program.
German student starts their preparation for Abitur from Year 11 (F.5) for 2 years, therefore German boarding school seldom take in new student at Year 12. Students who finish F.5 in Hong Kong usually repeat Year 11 in the German boarding school or, if of excellent grade, admit to Year 12.
