Transitions and educational paths in compulsory education
Every year, 1.3% of pupils from the 3rd to 8th year of primary level retake their school year. This repetition rate varies by sex, migration category, the time of arrival in Switzerland and parents' educational level. It is higher in French-speaking Switzerland (1.8%) than in German and Romansh-speaking Switzerland (1.2%) and in Italian-speaking Switzerland (0.9%). Major differences exist between the cantons as well as between the communes and schools in each canton.
