AimeeWILLEMSTAD – Aime Voigt has graduated from Radulphus High School with an average of 8.3 points (out of 10). She attended the Voorbereidend wetenschappelijk onderwijs (vwo) or pre-university secondary education, which is the highest variant in the secondary educational system of the Dutch Kingdom, attended by approximately one fifth of all Dutch high school students.

After leaving elementary school students are enrolled in different types of secondary schools, according to their academic ability. The vwo course is a six-year course and successful completion allows the candidate admission to Dutch university. The vwo exam is therefore amatriculation exam.
