Consistently good results from the Deutsche Schule Pretoria

21 February 2015 No Comment

2014 proved to be another successful academic year at the Deutsche Schule Pretoria (DSP) when its Grade 12 students achieved a 100% pass rate.
Out of a total of 35 students, 34 qualified to study for a Bachelor’s degree at a Higher Educational Institution, while one student qualified for Diploma studies.
This high degree of correlation between the pass rate and the number of learners that qualify for further studies is remarkable.
The DSP offers two qualifications in Grade 12 – either the NSC (IEB) or the Combined Abitur-NSC.
The latter qualification consists of five subjects assessed by the IEB and seven subjects assessed by the German Education authorities.
Through this government-to-government agreement, successful learners in the Combined Abitur-NSC are recognised by German education authorities for entry to German universities and by the South African education authorities for entry to South African universities.
The IEB sees its involvement with this qualification as a means of keeping South African students in touch with global standards and developments.
Anne Ankermann is the top student of 2014 with 9 distinctions.
Her subjects were: English and German home languages, French second additional language, Mathematics (Abi), Biology (Abi), Chemistry (Abi), Physics (Abi), Art (Abi) and History (Abi). Anne intends to study Zoology at the University of Pretoria.
Mark Jäger achieved 8 distinctions.
He plans to do an internship in the German parliament in Berlin in order to prepare him for studies in politics. Before that he wants to participate in a social project in a township in Cape Town.
In third place with 6 distinctions at the DSP is Celina Pröbstl.
Celina was the Oktoberfest Queen in 2012. Celina is starting a LLB Law degree and want to specialise in Human Rights.
The DSP congratulates ALL its Grade 12 students on their well-earned achievements.
Most importantly, to go out into the world, apply their knowledge and to have fun in the process!
