In the field of natural sciences, the Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs has adopted educational standards for the secondary school leaving certificate for the subjects of biology, chemistry and physics. Four areas of competence were defined for the three subjects:



These areas of competence are linked to the respective subject matter as follows:

 

Areas of competence in biology

Gaining knowledge Observe, compare, experiment, use models and apply working techniques
communication Access and exchange information in a factual and technical way
rating Recognize and evaluate biological facts in different contexts

Areas of competence in chemistry


Expertise Know chemical phenomena, terms, laws and assign concepts
Gaining knowledge use experimental and other research methods and models
communication Access and exchange information in a factual and technical way
rating Recognize and evaluate chemical issues in different contexts

Areas of competence in physics
