If I am not mistaken, The most country has different system of education from my country. We enter university with to an exam and the exams are very difficult. We must study hard. Unfortunately the most students dont do it. What about your country? Is it hard?
I tell you about the italian system: the school starts at more or less 4 years old. Untill you're 6 it is nursery school. From 6 to 10 it is elementary school, where you learn to read, write and arithmetics (but also history, geography, science, english, Italian, litterature, geometry...). From 10 to 13 it is called MEDIE (where commonly 2 languages are studied: I studied English and French). At the end of MEDIE's school there is an exam. Then you can choose between a liceo or a school which allows you to work immediatly as you finish (in theory). After the liceo you have to do the university, it is not an obligation, but for 5 years you study subjects which don't make you ready for working. Both the liceo than the ISTITUTO PROFESSIONALE (as we call it) last 5 years. At the end there is an exam. Then the univesity which is divided in TRIENNALE (3years) and then the MAGISTRALE (the last 2 years). Some univerisities are not divided, as law for example. Then you just have to hope to find a job =)
Every country have different system to judge the skills of a student. Yes, this vary from country to country but i don't think, that this will be easy for them.
Unfortunately , system of education of Russia degrades at the moment compared with former USSR education system.
