    Thanks guys,
    Well History I'm dissappointed in, I recieved a A* during the mocks and got full marks on both pieces of coursework so I might request I remark just to be a pain :grin:

    Well I'm now going on to do a mixture of College and 6th form
    I'm doing 3 A levels at my current school
    and one more at a College, so my plans are to do, History, Phsycology, Archaeology and Philosophy and Ethics.

    GCSE - General Certificate of Education.....usually taken at 16 years old.

    I did a similar History course in the dim and distant past.....the tutor couldn't pronounce his 'R's'....he went on a lot about Weperwations.....cracked me up! I was a very disruptive student......does that come as a surprise? :grin:

    I haven't got the papers, so I don't know where I screwed up.
    The part on Womens suffrage was all source based so It shouldn't have been to bad but who knows all I can do is try for a remark.
    And thanks everyone!

    Wow Dave that's pretty good results for your O's.

    I took my A's two years ago and i have to admit that the O's were the hardest exams that i have ever sat in.

    O (Ordinary) levels are what GCSEs were called until somepoint in the early 90s or late 80s I believe (Not too sure on the time, but they were called GCSEs by the time I took mine in 94) and are usually taken at 16. They can be taked earlier by especially gifted pupils. Typically around 10 subjects are taken.

    A (Advanced) levels are taken after usually a two year course and sort of build on GCSEs, they're usually taken at or around 18. Typically only 3 or 4 subjects are taken.

    There are also various systems of courses in specific areas and vocational qualifications that can be taken, many of which are supposed to have a value in terms of being worth a number of GCSEs or A levels, and apprenticeships are also available.

    At this point Dave has completed his compulsory schooling (Which ends at 16 in the UK), but if he wanted to he could carry on pretty much as long as he wanted. A friend of mine just finished his studies last year at 28 because he took the university route all the way to PhD.

    That's even quite fast, at least by Danish standards. Many people taking a Ph.D. in Denmark are in their thirties (which is quite natural, as schooling starts at age six, with ten years of primary school, three years of secondary school, four to six years of university and three years for the Ph.D. - usually with a few years away from school in that time - so anyone taking a Ph.D. at the age of 27 would pretty much have gone straight through the educational system, without any breaks.

    In Alabama and I would guess the rest of the USA is the same, you start elementary school at age 6 and it goes through 5th grade (each grade being a school year). Then you go to middle school (also called junior high school) from 6th grade to 8th grade. After that is high school from 9th to 12th grade. You take the graduation exam at the end of 11th grade and it covers all the varying subjects (grammar, reading, math, science, history, geography, etc.). In 12th grade you have to make sure you have all your class credits up to par to graduate. This is done at age 17 and 18 depending on your birthday.

    Then you are finished with primary education. You can then go to secondary education (college, vocational school, etc).
