Skipping a grade

Skipping a grade (in German: “Überspringen”) in school is a measure in accelerated learning, and each individual case should be carefully examined and agreed to and supported by everyone involved. It requires—alongside a high cognitive ability—a very good capacity for learning and intrinsic motivation as well as adequate social and emotional maturity.
