Repeating a class or year in Hamburg is only possible in exceptional cases regulated by law. The principle of promoting instead of repeating applies.
The exact regulations can be found in § 45 of the Hamburg School Act, § 12 (2) to § 12 (4) of the training and examination regulations for primary school and grades 5 to 10 of the district school and high school, as well as § 4 of the training and Examination regulations for acquiring the general higher education entrance qualification.
