At what age is it appropriate for public school children to go abroad❓

I believe many parents will be curious about what the various age groups mean. I will not answer them one by one here. You only need to remember a few key time points and what they mean❗️The content is relatively dry . 😐Collect it first✅Let ’s start to check the seats (top universities are not included in the discussion) ❗️The following ages are calculated according to September 1st of each year🧮For example, if you were born in May 2011, then your age will be September 1st this year Just over 13 years old ✍️

⚠️ 13 years old - 9th grade ❗️ 14 years old - 10th grade ❗️ 15 years old - 11th grade ❗️ 16 years old - 12th grade ❗️ Let’s take a look at the differences, what courses correspond to these ages, and what kind of children are suitable for them 👀

1️⃣ 13 years old - Grade 9: This grade is the year before entering the British junior high school. You can translate it as Grade 9 or Year 9. The content (mathematics, English, science and some electives) is not particularly difficult. It is suitable for public schools and Students who want to study GCSE in the UK, it is recommended that you come a year early to adapt⏰especially for English and teaching. The earlier you adapt, the better you can perform in GCSE🎉

2️⃣ 14 years old - Grade 10: It means that you have officially entered the British junior high school stage. Two years later, you need to take the public examination for the British Junior High School Diploma❗️In this grade, students generally take 7-9 courses, mathematics, English, Physics and Chemistry is a compulsory subject❗️Students studying in grade 9 in the UK will have an easier time studying than those who have just arrived😊

3️⃣ 15 years old to 11th grade: Most GCSE courses are two-year, but many middle schools in the UK offer one-year GCSE or one-year courses in order to cater to students from different countries (from different education systems). The one-year Alevel preparatory course ❗️The one-year GCSE is suitable for: students from the international system ⚠️better English proficiency (at least IELTS 5.5-6.0) ⚠️those students who have completed the 1️⃣ year of GCSE from other schools ❗️public middle schools Students should not try it easily ❌It is better to study Alevel preparatory courses honestly (mathematics and English are compulsory) ✅After studying hard, go to a good Alevel school❗️

4️⃣ 16 years old to 12th grade: At this time, you officially enter the British high school stage. The course lasts for two years. The public examination is two years later. Students need to apply for university with the results of the first️⃣ year to obtain conditional admission. Wait for the second year. You will know whether you meet the university admission requirements after the annual college entrance examination results ✅Public school students come to the UK to study for Alevel, which means you will be under greater pressure, especially in English. Let’s not say that mathematics is simple for now, I know, but the premise is that you have to You can understand the questions, not to mention that the other professional courses you want to take for Alevel also have a lot of professional terms❗️

For students from public schools who want to go abroad, if they can afford it: taking GCSE or taking Alevel preparatory courses one year in advance is the best solution✅
