And what tests do you have to take??
I'm a parent but I can answer for you.
My children get about an hours worth a day... Usually spread over 2 or 3 subjects...
In secondary school (your high school) they study Maths, English, History, Science, Geography, Physical Education, Religion, Information Technology, Learning to Learn etc...
Graduation is not like in the USA... My children will take individual exams (called GCSE's) in 8 chosen subjects and will leave school if the pass these or not. There is not a graduation certificate per se... And no ceremony either.
Email me if you need to know more...
Good luck with the project...
Not a lot...we're lazy...jealous?
such a waste of time,,,,,,
I don't even think life is real. But what then is fake? Eventually if you think about it enough you begin not to care.
It depends on which part of the UK you live in, the Scottish education system is different from the system in England. I have no idea how the system is in Wales or Ireland. Scotland also has a different education authority from England, maybe you could try searching the web for education authorities in the separate parts of the UK and try to send a quick email to someone there asking for a quick explanation of how it works. I'm sure someone there will be happy to explain it!
well i am now doing 5 highers in biology,maths,english,chemistr... and modern studies. We are expected to do 5 hours a week for each sunject and on top of that we have to do extra revision.
Thats for scotland anyway i think we do too much in my honest opinion
Oh and you dont have to have anything to graduate we dont graduate we just leave when we want and you can leave as soon as you are16 but if you say on and do any extra 2 years you can do higher and advanced higher classes that you need if you want to go to uni
well when i was at school years ago i had plenty every night for my gcses, but my teenage daughter doesnt seem to get alot. she has maths, english liturature, english languarge, french, p.e, religious studies, geograpghy, technology, biology, physics, shemistry, germon. i know you have now got to do so much course work per a two year period, then some of the subjects have a exam at the end, others grades are counted on your coursework.
Mr Moonlight's answer is quite accurate, but some schools will get the kids to do more than 8 GCSEs at the age of 16. My son did 12, my daughter 11. It depends on the school's resources and the pupils' ability.
My own kids got around 2hours' homework a night but sometimes had to do more work if they had a project to do and a deadline to meet!
After doing your GCSEs you can leave school and get a job or go to a college to study a vocational subject, for example if you want to be a plumber or electrician. Most kids go back to school for a further two years to study between 3 and 5 subjects to take exams called A-Levels (A = advanced). If you apply to go to university, the admissions officer will tell each applicant what grades they need in their A-Levels to get a place - it varies depending on the university and the course. Some kids take their A-Levels and then go into employment.
You don't get credits like in the USA; the A-Level exams are based on a mixture of coursework and exams, and you are awarded a final pass grade between A and E. To get into a top university you might need 3 grade As; my son had to get 2 Bs and a C for his course.
quite a bit
this is a lot of questions, but it really depends on the school
These days, school in the UK is next to hopeless with no discipline at all
Apparently a popular pasttime in one of the new "City academies" in Middlesbrough is for students to throw tables from the higher floors in the building, so it lands on people below, injurying them (I'm not kidding either. I used to do a work experience placement at an outdoor education centre run by the council that also runs the school, so this info filtered down from there directly 'cos some of the worst behaved ones were regularly sent down to the centre to do activities).
well we get about 2-4 subjects of homework a day and our summer breaks only lasted 6 weeks. we hae to take a test on 10 subjects called the GCSEs and stuff like that.
we study the normal subjects: history, geography, grammar, history of art, art, mathematics and other things.
