7 September 1896, reproduction
After Einstein does not pass the entrance examination for the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, he has to go back to school. The liberal Aarau Canton School is perfect for him: In addition to Latin and Greek, it teaches modern languages and the natural sciences. In 1896, he can register for the university entrance examination.
