[Archive] British members - results day


To those of you collecting your A-level and BTEC results today, good luck and I hope you get the results you need.

Thommy H:

A-levels are the final qualification before university, essentially. You do them between high school and college (high school finishes at 16 in Britain - you can choose to stay on and do A-levels).

It works differently in Scotland though, because they’re just like that.

oh!!! 16 we call them Freshmen in high school!!


@Sojourn: Grade 13, or thereabouts.
