Middle School Diploma (MSA) & Upper Secondary School Certificate (Abitur)

Students can complete their school career at the end of the 10th grade with the examination for the intermediate school leaving certificate (MSA – Mittlerer Schulabschluss). In order to achieve the MSA, the year and examination grades must be passed. With this diploma, vocational training can be started or a higher school education such as high school diploma (Fachhochschulreife), subject-related high school diploma (fachgebundene Hochschulreife) or A-levels (Abitur) can be aimed at by a further school attendance.
