Finals, exams from your country, share them!

I think it would be interesting to find out about the types of exams and schools sharenators have survive !
I will start! In my country, the Czech republic, you have to go through 9 years compulsory education. After that you can choose to study in a wide range of schools where you generally have to study for 3-4 years. At the end of this school you can do the maturita-exams, something like abitur or A-levels. And then you go to University.

    USA, supposedly required education for 12 years, dropouts at any age. GED(welfare diploma) for dropouts.

    college afterwards from 1-who knows how many years. i'm just finishing my 1st semester of college(last final was today) for my welding degree.

    welding degree?

    Presumably a degree that states you can weld.

    I assumed that much, I just wasn't aware a degree was necessary for that. Thought it might be something ultra-specific I hadn't heard of

    it's my associates of applied sciences with a welding certificate, or a welding degree

    school until 16 when you do all your GCSE's in year 11. You can leave school if you want to then, or continue onto A levels for 2 years. After that you can go to University, and that's where i start to lose track of how it works having not got there yet, i'm in my first year of A levels.

    This exam period i have a total of only 8 exams, 3 have happened already, 1 is tomorrow. They've gone fairly well, with the biggest mistake so far being in German when he asked my opinion on dangerous sports, and i started talking about Tennis :P But i said it can be dangerous if you get hit by the ball.... :P

    it's even more dangerous if it hits both...

    USA, 12 years schooling then 4 in college if you choose to (more for additional degrees). Simple.

    In Australia it's a little different in each state. In my state its 12 years of school (1-7 primary school, 8-12 high school). You finish High School at around 17 years old then you can go into tertiary education if you want, Uni or TAFE

    In my state, school is compulsory grades 1-10, then you can leave if you have a full time job. If you do stay (me) you have to complete the next two years, then take a test known as the QCS or Core Skills Test. This test determines you're OP (Overall position) which in turn determines if you can get into University (OP 1 means you can get into anything, and OP 25 means you might as well give up.)
