Notes:
In September of 2010 the structure of high schools was changed.
Previous to this the students took external examinations at the end of Year 12.
With the changes to the school system, students now take exams at the end of Year 11.
Year 12 is used as an additional mandatory year allowing some students to resit exams where they weren’t successful and/or take up some vocational classes. September 2010 was the transition year; therefore two year groups took external examinations in June 2010 –Year 11 students and Year 12 students. Students who were successful in their examinations can now go on to do A’ Levels at one of the private schools or begin the Associate program at UCCI.
