• How hard can it be... 1st grade is like NO.
  • Years? You mean standards? Standard 1-10?
  • huh I'm lost whadyamean?
  • Dear lord no. It makes no sense at all to me
  • No, I can't get my head around American schools or hospitals.
  • I don't know what the English school system is like, being American, but here's how our "grades" work. :) When you're around age 5, you start kindergarten. The next year you start 1st grade. Each year after that you begin the next grade. You attend kindergarten and grades 1-12, beginning around age 5 and ending around age 18. Then you're done with the required schooling. If you want to go to college/university, then you apply and go as you wish. If you hear us referring to being a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior those refer to our grades 9-12 respectively, during which time we attend high school. (Usually, Grades K-5 are elementary school, 6-8 are middle school or junior high, and 9-12 are high school. It's just a way of separating kids of different ages into different schools so that we don't have tens of thousands of kids at the same location.)
  • American school grades- Elementary School consists of Kindergarten, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Middle School consists of 6, 7 and 8. High School consists of 9(freshmen), 10(sophomore) 11(Junior) 12 (Senior). After the Senior year is completed you have a High School Diploma. Most kids are 18 years old at or near High School graduation. Then comes College- there are no more numbers, just names and degrees. Also, a "year" is not necessarily a "year". It can take less than a year if you cram more classes in, it can take longer if you take fewer classes. The names for the first four years are the same as the names of the High School years. The first two years are Freshmen and Sophomore, After those two years are completed you have an Associates Degree. The next two years are Junior and Senior, then you have a Bachelors Degree. All previous degrees are general- they are the same for everyone. Bachelors Degrees (and higher) are specific to a field of study. That ends the "Undergraduate" or "undergrad" years. Then, comes a Masters Degree. This is usually two more years. Then a Doctorate Degree, which is usually another two years.
  • Not really. Have you got your head around the usage of capital letters since you first posted this question, or are you still inexplicably obsessed with lower case?
