    Well, in continuation of the previous thread...

    I went to a playgroup, then a nursery school. Then Primary school, which was split into Infants (Reception, year 1 and 2, known as Key Stage One) and Juniors (years 3 - 6, making Key Stage 2). After that we have the joys of Secondary school, which was also split up into Key stages, only two of which were compulsory: Key Stage Three = Years 7 - 9, and Key Stage Four = Years 10 and 11.

    Key Stage Five is optional, but will be made compulsory pretty soon (where I am, at least). This is Sixth Form, years 12 + 13, where you get ya A Levels. If you want, you can skip them and go straight into work. Or, you can go to college for those two years instead.

    Then it's University! Unless, of course, you do a foundation year. Or a gap year. Or don't go to uni at all. And it's sometimes called college too.

    In short, UK education is long and weird and convoluted. Did any of you guy have to do the 11+ ?

    jeez I don't really know why I wrote all of that
