I still get confused on how that whole system works. But congrats once again.
Thanks Kev... basically, here school goes up to Grade 13.
So in Grade 12 & Grade 13 you do these exams called A-levels, this is referred to 'sixth form college'
or just 'college'. Some sixth forms are part of a high school (e.g. Grade 7 to Grade 13), others are separate institutions (e.g. after Grade 11 you can move to a sixth form college
to do A-levels).
After Grade 11 you can also do BTECs instead, but this usually takes 3 years to complete, not 2 (A-levels are obviously 2 years).
So that's what college refers to here lol (where 16 - 18/19 year olds study before attending university).
You need A-level qualifications to attend university (or BTEC qualifications). For example, X course at X university has an A-level requirement of ABB in order to apply for it. Hope that makes sense lol.
Obviously this thread was about moving to a more prestigious uni after completing my first year of uni elsewhere - I already met my new uni's A-level requirements but they wanted certain grades from my 1st year of uni in order to transfer straight into Year 2 of the course.
I believe in the U.S you just finish high school after grade 12, then go to college which is 4 years (I think?) or you go to community college (which is 2 years) before attending 'college' college. Correct me if I'm wrong lol not sure how it works over there.
