After successfully finishing Year 4 of grammar school, all students need to pass splošna matura (=college-prep leaving exam / baccalaureate). Matura is taken in the spring term or in the fall term.
Matura consists of five exams – three compulsory subjects and two elective subjects. Students can choose from all matura subjects that are regulated by the grammar school programme:
– compulsory subjects:
- a foreign language
– elective subjects:
- foreign languages (English, French, Italian, German, Russian, Spanish)
- art history
Students choose the subjects and levels (basic/ higher) according to the Pravilnik o splošni maturi (Ur. l. RS, št. 29/2008) and Matura exam catalogue.
