What prior academic knowledge is required for the courses?
The final examination is extremely rigorous and requires confident mastery of several languages, scientific and mathematical subjects and other subjects. To ensure that this is the appropriate path for each student, all applicants are required to complete an aptitude test.
Can I complete the Swiss Matura in one go?
The exam for the Swiss Matura can be taken either as a single exam or as two partial exams. At Academic Gateway, all students will complete the two partial exams. The first partial exam is held after the first semester, and the second partial exam after the second semester in Switzerland. The exams are conducted in Bern, Basel or Zurich by the Swiss Matura Commission. Academic Gateway organises the arrangements for the exam sessions for Swiss Online Matura students (including biannual travel to Switzerland).
What happens if I fail?
Academic Gateway stands for quality, respect and professionalism; the same is expected of all students. If a student attends 95% of lessons and completes 100% of all academic work (e.g. exams, online modules, project work, etc.) and still fails the Matura, he/she may repeat the course in the form of one year’s free e-learning access.
What is the requirement in terms of in-person lessons?
How do I catch up on any subject material that I miss?
Matura students can find all the relevant information in the form of exercises, theory and sample solutions, including all video recordings, in our e-learning content.
Is there an age limit?
Students must reach the age of majority (18 years) in the same year as the second partial exam. Students must also demonstrate motivation and perseverance as well as confident mastery of languages and scientific and mathematical subjects.
Do my interim grades from public grammar school count?
