# Weighted aptitude assessment procedure: two calculation examples

## Calculation example 1: possible maximum score in the Abitur 900

The applicant has reached the average Abitur grade 1.0 with 833 (out of a total of 900 points).

Calculation of the university entrance qualification (HZB) score (HZB = Abitur)
833 : 60 = 13. 883333(no rounding up, the last decimal places are ignored)

Calculation of individual scores for core subjects:
the arithmetic mean of the last 4 school semesters

 Maths: 14 + 14 +13 + 13= 54 :4 = 13,50 points German: 14 + 15 + 13 +14= 56 :4 =14,00 points English: 10 + 11 + 12 + 12= 45 :4 =11,25 points

Calculation of the total score relevant for selection:

 Weighting per item University entrance qualification: 13,88 x 8,00 = 111,04 80% Maths: 13,50 x 1,00 = 13,50 10% German: 14,00 x 0,50 = 7,00 5% English: 11,25 x 0,50 = 5,62 5% Total: = 137,16 Result: 137,16 : 10= 13,71 points

If a different weighting system is applied to individual subjects (e.g. 60:20:10:10), the total score is calculated according to the same method.

This score determines the ranking of each applicant in the order of qualification.

## Calculation example 2: possible maximum score in the Abitur 840 points

he applicant has reached the average Abitur grade 1.0 with 768 points (out of a total of 840 points)

Calculation of the university entrance qualification (HZB) score (HZB = Abitur)
768 : 56 = 13.714285 (no rounding up, last decimal places are ignored)

Calculation of individual scores for core subjects:
the arithmetic mean of the last 4 school semesters

 Maths: 14 + 13 + 13 + 14 = 54 :4 = 13,50 points Physics: 13 + 12 + 12 + 11 = 48 :4 = 12,00 points English: 11 + 10 + 10 + 13 = 44: 4 = 11,00 points

Calculation of the total score relevant for selection:

 Weighting per item University entrance qualification: 13,71 x 8,00 = 109,68 80% Maths 13,50 x 1,00 = 13,50 10% Physics 12,00 x 0,50 = 6,00 5% English 11,00 x 0,50 = 5,50 5% Total = 134,68 Result: 134,68 : 10 = 13,46 points

If a different weighting system is applied to individual subjects (e.g. 60:20:10:10), the total score is calculated according to the same method.

This score determines the ranking of each applicant in the order of qualification.
