- Study in Britain after grade 11 for Russian schoolchildren and foreign children
In the period from the 7th to 9th grade, British children (as well as foreigners who chose to study in this country) continue to receive secondary education . A rather wide list of disciplines is being studied: among the main tasks of this stage is not only the formation of a stable base of fundamental knowledge, but also the identification of the personal interests and inclinations of each student, which subsequently helps to determine more accurately the choice of university and profession.
From the age of 14-15, students usually enter the GCSE course (certificate of secondary education, General Certificate of Secondary Education). Foreigners can take this course after grade 8 (the duration of training is 2 years) or after 9th grade (then it will take only a year to study). The GCSE program provides for both compulsory (English, mathematics) and elective disciplines that the student chooses independently and for which he then passes the exams.

The duration of the A-level is 2 years (there is a shortened version of the duration of the year), children aged 16 and over are accepted for the course. The first year is studied 4-5 subjects by choice, in the second - only 3-4 from your own list, chosen at will. Good scores on the A-level exams give a significant advantage when entering the universities of Foggy Albion and the whole world.
