Oh my word. There is so much UK english that I don't understand. What the hell does sixth form mean!? When do you graduate high school? Why is it that we speak the same language, but I can't understand you?
Haha its not that hard. Ok I will go through the schooling system with you
Primary school: 4 - 11 years
High school: 11 - 16 years
When your sixteen you take some exam called GCSE’s these are really important (or at the time they are) You have to get certain grades to get into six form where you study A-levels or a BTEC like I did.
So you then Graduate High school at 16 but if you stay on at sixth form you graduate again at 18.
Sixth form/college: 16 - 18 years
Basically sixth form is (excuse me if I am wrong) The final two years of American high school…Freshman and Senior year but you have to get through exams to get to those two last years.
Then the sixth form exams get you into university.
The “college” I meant is for people in the UK who dont want to stay on at school to 18 in sixth form. My school did’nt have a sixth form so left at 16 and could either transfer to another school or go to college.
College is like sixth form but they offer a broader range of subjects/courses and you dont have to be in the 16-18 age bracket. I wanted to go to college because they offered a 2 year Graphic design course called a BTEC.
Then you go to Uni…”big” college
Sorry about the ramble, I am sure you didn’t really want to know all that hahaha
urm it depends really. When I was younger I didn’t really live near any girls so I used to always play out with the boys and I went to cubs and scouts. At school we had a good mix of boys and girls in our group of friends but I was always closest to the girls. At college the boys in my class were weirdos (no offence if your reading) and I really missed laddy company. Now that I am at uni, I have made a good mixture of friends including a few close lad mates. I guess you can just be yourself with them and not worry about bitchiness.
