Description

The statistics contain annual data on school-leaving examinations and/or diploma examinations taken at general and vocational secondary schools in Austria. Regional data are presented according to the location of the school or, in the case of the school-leaving examination rate, according to the home town of the students. The standardised skills-oriented diploma examination and Reifeprüfung (sRDP) is the most popular route to the Matura throughout Austria. Those with initial vocational training can take the Berufsreifeprüfung (BRP) instead. The Externistenreifeprüfung allows students to take the final exam without initial vocational training or an AHS/BHS degree.

The legal basis is the Federal Act on Documentation in Education (Bildungsdokumentationsgesetz 2020) and the ordinances of the ministries responsible for the respective types of schools.
