    India: Joint Entrance Exam (JRE)

    Just for comparison, I don't think it's even needed to link Swiss, German or US high school exams for comparison. That's not just different worlds, but a different solar system:

    Even when I was in college I had to struggle to work thru that stuff. Now it completely resembles a foreign language. We have clearly become a nation in decline.

    To be fair, if you don't use that knowledge regularly, usually you forget it pretty fast. What I am concerned of: This is serious stuff, in Swizerland (or Germany), no high-school student would be able to attend a university with this kind of entrance exam.

    Honestly, it looks just like my grandfather's 8th-9th grade books I found in his attic when I was a kid. This would have been in Mississippi circa 1915.

    That sounds plausible. My high-school exam was probably similar as well. But at least in Switzerland, eigenvalues & vectors of matrices and complex numbers are not part of the curriculum anymore. In fact, I doubt that many students could have solved the inverse trigonometry problems.
