The
presentation
here
departs
from that
in
the
original,
where the
subject headings
were
arranged
on a single
horizontal
line,
with the
grades standing
di-
rectly
beneath the
corresponding heading.
[1] The
names
and
grades
of other
pupils
are
omitted.
[2] The
secondary-school leaving
examina-
tion
in
geography
was
generally
administered
at
the end of
the
second
year,
those
in
English
and Italian
at
the end of
the third
year
(see
Matura-Reglement
1893,
article
6).
Since
Einstein entered the
Gewerbeschule in
the third
year
and
never
took
geography there, some
special
arrangement
must
have been made
in
his
case.
There
were no
examinations
in
draw-
ing
or
technical
drawing;
work done
during
the
year
served
as
the
basis
for these
grades
(see ibid.).
MATURA EXAMINATIONS
AT THE
GEWERBESCHULE,
AARGAU KANTONSSCHULE
In
September 1896,
Einstein and
his
fourth-year
classmates
in
the
Gewerbeschule
took the
secondary-school leaving
examination
(Maturitätsprüfung),
often abbre-
viated
Matura.[1]
Passing
the examination
was
important
to his
plans:
a
leaving
cer-
[1] Ten
pupils registered
to
take the
exam-
ination,
the nine
in Einstein's
class
and
a
pupil
in
the
third-year
class.
The latter
apparently
withdrew before examination time
(see

Schulrat,
