Germany

Debate about the comparability of school leaving examinations (in German)
Spiegel Online  (6 March 2012) 

German education ministers are debating students’ school leaving exams. Until now, every state has had its own tests depending on each state’s formal curriculum. Some ministers now want to make school leaving examinations comparable for all states. Other ministers charge that this would result in great changes and problems (e.g. all pupils having exams on the same day). All ministers agree, however, that there have to be comparable educational standards. The first results of this policy debate may be decided at the conference of the ministers happening in the near future.
