Niederlande: „During grade 8 (Anm.: d. h. im 12. Lebensjahr), all pupils – and their parents – receive what is called 'school advice', which is based on the national Cito test score and on the opinion of the teacher. In practice this is not just advice: it has important consequences for the type of school the pupil can be admitted to. The advice takes the form of an official document for the secondary school; it is given during a parent-teacher meeting to discuss the Cito test score and, more generally, the development and attitude of the pupil over the years.“

Zhong kao, Shanghais rigorose Prüfung am Übergang von der Sekundarstufe I zur Sekundarstufe II ...

„At the end of lower secondary school (ninth grade), all students must take the Lower Secondary School Graduation Examination in Shanghai. The subjects tested include Chinese, math, English, physics, and chemistry. Physical education, lab operations, and moral ethics of students also factor into students’ final exam scores. The exam serves the dual purposes of selection into high schools and providing information on the overall performance of the basic education system. The total score on the exam determines the type of high school in which students will enroll: admission into highly selective comprehensive schools requires outstanding performance on the exam. […] Because of its primary purpose as a mechanism for selection into high school, the zhong kao has become increasingly high stakes for children in Shanghai. The test ultimately determines in which type of high school ninth-grade graduates can enroll.“

Niederlande: Selection occurs with the advice of the teacher as main determinant ...

Niederlande: „At the end of primary school, around age 12, pupils choose one of three options: pre-vocational secondary education (vmbo, 4 years), senior general secondary education (havo, 5 years) or pre university education (vwo, 6 years). Selection occurs with the advice of the teacher as main determinant, although a national test (CITO-toets) taken by most children also plays a large role.”

Dänemark: A secondary education diploma does not guarantee a place in higher education ...

Dänemark: „A secondary education diploma does not guarantee a place in higher education. Admission depends on the number of 'student seats' available. For every study program at a higher education institution, a maximum number of students is set. For some studies this number is decided centrally by the ministry, for others it is set by the institution.

Admission to Norwegian universities ...

Norwegen: „Admission to Norwegian universities is a complicated process, partly dependent on grades. Students who follow a general training path at the upper secondary school will take exams that lead to general university admission certification, called generell studiekompetanse. This diploma is a requirement to be admitted to universities, but it does not guarantee placement.“

Schweden: A numerus clausus principle applies to all higher education study programs ...

Schweden: „Admission to higher education depends on upper secondary grades and a national admission test that students can take voluntarily. A numerus clausus principle applies to all higher education study programs, meaning that there is a great deal of competition for seats in the most popular programs.“

Finnland: Entrance to higher education is highly selective and all study paths are subject to quota ...

Finnland: „Entrance to higher education is highly selective and all study paths are subject to quota. The amount of seats for each study path at each HEI (Anm.: Higher Education Institution) is determined in negotiations with the ministry of Education and Culture. Universities and polytechnics select their students independently. Institutions apply different selection criteria, but the most common procedure includes the grades attained in the matriculation examination together with the results of an entrance examination. On average, about one third of those taking the exam gain access to university.“

Finnland: Schools for the gifted and talented ...

Finnland: „The upper secondary level has witnessed an increase in the number of 'special schools', focusing on the education of talented youngsters in arts, sports, science and languages. According to Finnish researchers Kirsi Tirri and Elina Kuusisto, 'these special schools can just as well be called schools for the gifted and talented as it is very difficult to be accepted into them'. Selection is based on the marks of the student, while most places organize their own admission exam as well.“

Finnland: „A national entrance exam is taken for every study program and admission is based on these exam results. Competition for places in popular programs is fierce.“

Auf Tests gestützte Übergangsprognostik ...

„Singapore’s Primary School leaving Examination at the end of Year 6 is not just one more standardized test. It carries astonishingly high stakes. Pupils’ scores affect the status of the secondary school they or their parents might be able to choose and the stream (or track) that they will be assigned to.”

Finnland: Talent support institutions ...

Finnland: „At secondary level, 37 of the 463 general secondary schools of the country provide special education. These could also be defined as talent support institutions, for it is very difficult to be admitted there. Selection is based on the marks of the student, while most places organise their own admission exam as well.“
