The long wait for the high school graduates in the district of Starnberg came to an end on Friday afternoon. The students were redeemed and received their grades from their teachers in the most important exams of their school career.
District - A total of 534 students have taken the Abitur at the grammar schools in the district this year - but not all of them have achieved the required average. However, most students who have not yet passed can still reach the goal in the so-called additional exams after the holidays.
In Starnberg, 81 out of 89 examinees have so far passed the Abitur, four of them with a smooth 1.0. What he is particularly pleased about is that the overall grade point average is roughly at the level of 2022 with an average grade of 2.1, despite the abolition of the Corona favorable regulation. Some had "actually picked up their grades with tears in their eyes".
This year, 135 examinees were enrolled at the Christoph-Probst-Gymnasium in Gilching. "It is pleasing that the overall average differs from the previous Abitur by only 0.06 grade points and is even slightly better than Abitur averages from the pre-Corona years," says headmistress Elisabeth Mayr happily. Two students had achieved the dream grade of 1.0, 12 students were happy about an average better than 1.5 and 37 students had a 1 before the decimal point. The number of re-examinees is lower than in the previous year.
At the Otto-von-Taube-Gymnasium in Gauting, the number of external applicants is particularly high this year at 15. "In recent years, I have often had the impression that they were not so well prepared. That was not the case with this high school diploma," says headmistress Sylke Wischnevsky. A total of 2023 students graduated from high school in Gauting in 144. "That's a whole 20 more young people, i.e. last year," says the headmistress. "Half the staff, about 50 teachers, were busy with the exams." Around 300 oral examinations alone have taken place. The best average of 1.79 will probably not be achieved this year, but Wischnevsky is satisfied. "Unfortunately, not everyone has made it yet." Less than a handful of students still have to take the additional exam.
At the Tutzing Gymnasium, 93 students took the Abitur exams this year. "At least two have achieved a 1.0," says headmaster Andreas Thalmaier. At least because high school graduates who want to improve their average can also take an additional exam. "This year's vintage is very mixed."
On the eastern shore of Lake Starnberg in Kempfenhausen, 64 out of 73 high school graduates have already successfully passed their exams, once with an average of 1.0.
