Das Hector-SeminarBaden-WuerttembergNordbaden (Mannheim, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Pforzheim)https://hector-seminar.de/startseite/MINTPupils from 6th to 12th grade (Abitur)Testing conducted at chosen gymnasia.

Probably MHBT-S intelligence test developed by Prof. Kurt A. Heller.
Six years of different measures, mostly research projects and additional corses, workshops and internships.

See here(ger, https://hector-seminar.de/wie-wir-foerdern/)

See works of Kurt A. Heller for the detailed evaluation of the project (early years)

+ do they test/evaluate pupils' performance each year? Namely, can one pupil be expelled from the program based on the testing / unsatisfactory results? It's six years after all.

multi-profilePupils from 9th to 11th gradeMain critieria is "the readiness to take responsibility for yourself and others"

Admission: once a year, the candidates spend a weekend at one of the schools with the jury. There, they solve problems in areas such as art, theater and "motion" [ger: Bewegung]. [Why these areas lol?]

Also see comments


The pupils receive the possibility to spend the last 2-3 years of the school at boarding schools for high-performing pupils.

Also, they receive a scholarship; the amount is not stated.
It is also mentioned that a part of the admission is based on the criteria of another big German scholarship, "Stiftung des deutschen Volkes".

A part of this admission are "educational ability" tests developed by IBT consulting, see here: http://www.itb-consulting.de/de/produkte/auswahl-und-foerderung-von-stipendiaten/massgeschneiderte-tests/auf-anforderungen-massgeschneiderte-auswahl-und-beratungstests/
