Congratulations to Hagata Raguel Jehoshua - 3rd place in the Nationale Deutscholympiade 2018

Congratulations to Hagata Raguel Jehoshua who won the 3rd place in the Nationale Deutscholympiade 2018!


The final round of the National German Olympiad was held on 28th - 31st January 2018 at The German Cultural Centre in cooperation with The German Embassy and the Indonesian German Teachers Association. 67 students participated in the final round, representing an impressive 27 provinces from Indonesia. The participants were tested in all aspects of their German language skills.


Reaching the final stage was not easy. Hagata toiled after school and even during holidays to master his German Language skills with the help and guidance of his PSKG German teachers: Herr Welly Kristianto, Frau Rika Naftalia and Frau Rachel Nuevaladewi. Hagata also had to successfully progress through the preliminary rounds including the selection for DKI Jakarta which he advanced from with two other students from the province in November 2017.


As a result of his achievement, Hagata won the opportunity to spend the summer at a youth course in Germany.

Well done Hagata!

Testimony from Elizabeth Amy Santoso

Below is the testimony from one of our students, Elizabeth Amy Santoso regarding disadvantages of leaving after IGCSE and the challenges during the transition due to this decision.
Disadvantages of leaving after IGCSE and the challenges during transition due to this decision
1. Academic credit loss
If you enroll in a community college (with the intend to transfer to a four-year college/university), it is most likely that you will lose some academic credit to some extent. One example is one of my ex-classmates who transferred from a community college to a four-year university lost, maybe one-third of the credits he earned during his time in community college.
2. High school completion
Although I managed to attend a four-year university without graduating high school, the university still requested some form of a high school completion certificate which I did not have since I never completed high school. It took some time to resolve and thankfully they accepted my AS-level results as a substitute. Not having a high school completion letter/certificate limits the choices of schools one can apply to.
3. Academic rigor
In high school, teachers generally know their students and can pay attention to their academic well-being. Class sizes in university, particularly first and second year classes are significantly larger. Lectures can have 200 or more students. You are in control of your academic well-being. You can choose to skip lecture if you want, the teacher won't notice, though you are responsible when you fail the exam or miss an assignment.
I walked into an introductory coding class, not knowing anything about it. Although it was an introductory class, my professor taught us like he was teaching students with prior coding experience. In high school I usually spend up to three hours on homework. I needed at least ten hours on every homework for this class. This explains the academic expectations in university, therefore, taking time to improve study habits and learning to study independently might be a better option rather than leaving early..
What do you do when you need academic help? Higher education institutions provide tutoring services and professor office hours for students. This is similar to "les" in Indonesia. Most of these resources are included in school tuition, and you're better off spending an hour with them answering your questions rather than staying up late trying to finish your homework.
4. Knowledge
I came to university not knowing a single thing about engineering. Walking into students who have had past internships and had taken some engineering classes in high school made me feel less smart than they were. Many high schools in the United States offer a wider range of classes. Some schools offer classes including Psychology, Computer Science, Film Production, etc. Since Indonesia (or Cambridge) has a different education system than some countries, the adjustment might be difficult for some students which explain that staying for year 12 will allow students be close to par with American university students.
