Testing takes place in the subjects German, English, Mathematics as well as one further subject of choice.
The subjects German, English and Mathematics are centrally examined and take place in writing. In addition, an oral examination in English is conducted in the form of a teacher-student interview, in which the students take part in teams of two.
The final examination is a presentation in one further subject, chosen independently by the student body. The specialist teachers supervise the students by means of two counselling interviews. In the school year 2020/2021 the following dates are planned for the MSA:
Mon, 7th Dec 2020 Information Evening MSA
Fri, 29th Jan 2021 Enrolment Presentation Examination

In addition to the subject Spanish, in which 10 different course levels are offered from year 10 onwards, this is now also possible in the subjects Geography and Art.
Likewise, from Year 10 onwards, one of these one-hour subjects can be selected as a profile subject and serves as a preparation for the upper secondary school with two further lessons. As a result the subject of sport is taught with two lessons per week, in alignment with the approaching upper secondary school and the course Sport Practice. The profile courses generally support the skills and abilities of the students and sometimes prepare them for a successful transition to the upper school.
