whats year 9 ie what exams are you doing?
Well.. in short:
Year 1 - 6.. primary school. In Year 6 (11-12 year olds) take a 11+ exam to get into a senior school. (for boys there are sometimes exceptions where they have an exam at 14.. this is very rare and only at a local boys' school i know)
Year 7 - 9.. senior school. Sometimes in Year 9 you take SATS.. this is only usually done in state schools. I go to a private school so i never had to do them - honestly i don't know much about SATS.
Year 10.. (14-15 years old) you choose 10+ subjects you want to take for GCSE.
Year 11.. (15-16 years old) in June you take those 10+ subjects you chose.
Then you either start work or go to Sixth Form.. 2 years there.
Go to University at 18.. or take a Gap Year.
It's all a bit confusing but i hope you have a better idea.... :uhm:
