Word: Abiturient

Abiturient [Noun]

Sentence: Each syllable counted. Each word had a power of which, until then, I had been oblivious. The air in the classroom was loaded with awareness. Till today mere boys, we discovered a might within ourselves that had remained hidden hitherto by our poor self-perception. All at once, every Abiturient was a well of knowledge, a source of ideas, a person of talent. (Source: The Oxymoron Factor: Franek: Stranger in My Land by Frank Stiffel)

Meaning: A student (especially in the German education system) who has just joined a university or is going to a university after having taken the secondary school final examination

How To Remember?

Connect this word with “Novaturient“: The word “Nova” originates from the Latin “Novus” meaning “New“. “Novaturient” thus should remind you of someone who wants a new life!

Similarly, when we leave school to join a university, it indicates a new “turn” in our life. Thus, “Abiturient“!

Remember thus!
