    One undergrad degree, two graduate degrees, and a professional degree = too many years spent in school.

    Post Re: Education level on this forum?

    I'll be finishing college as a graduate in a few months.

    However, I have no idea how it's all called in USA terms.
    After graduating, perhaps I'll sign up for magistrature,
    but, I also have to go to the army, and since my family
    is relatively poor, I'll probably have to find some work
    ( which, for a male in Serbia is not easy to find ).

    Anyway, if someone tells me what I am,
    I'll just check that option.

    I guess that many people have no idea how to adjust
    their 'level' with US terms.

    The undergraduate/Bachelor's degree is the first post-secondary four-year degree. But, the US system doesn't seem to equate very well to some continental European systems. E.g. I'm not sure how a US Bachelor's/undergraduate degree equates to the French Bacalaureat.

    I *think* the baccaleureat [no i cant spell it at all] is the equivelant to the Irish Leaving Certificate which places it before undergraduate study as the exam taken in the last year of ''high school'' ...i dont understand the USA system either!

    So the Bacalaureat is really a sort of pre-university advance placement test?

    I chose 'other' because I didn't even finish grade 10 high school. I wanted to drop out in grade 7, but legally I could only do it once I turned 16. ( just to save my mom even more of a heartache.)

    Anyway, education is nothing.

    You're still stupid.

    I was under the impression it's akin to our Leaving Cert which is the exam you take in your last year of secondary school [usually from age 13 to 17], the results of which decide if you have a college place, yes.

    That sounds something like the equivalent of A-levels in Britain. There isn't an exact equivalent in the US, although the SAT plays an analogus role there.

    Yep, from what i know of A-levels, it's our nearest equivelant although i believe many English drop out after O-levels whereas here the great majority do not leave. The US system is beyond me
