Yeah, so exam time is looming on all of us non Britons (on the Britons as well, as it happens, but they already have a thread), and I personally am not really feeling that worried.

I'm taking the French Baccalaureat Spécialité Littéraire (Literature emphasis), and hoping to get at least a 13/20 average across the board. I need that 13 to get accepted into Cardiff University for my Law and French course.

I'm not actually French either, just been living here for 4 years.


What about everyone else?


OH and a very GOOD LUCK WISHED TO EVERYONE DOING SO THIS YEAR!

I'm taking the Polish Matura exam (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matura). Which I'm basically done with, except for the oral exam in Polish. I already aced my exams in English, and am hoping for somewhere around 60% on my extended level exams in Math and Physics. Hoping to get accepted into the Wrocław University of Technology, with those.

- Chemistry 2 (Year 13 level.)
- Norwegian bokmål (Mandatory for all year 13 students.)
- Norwegian nynorsk (Proof that there might be no merciful god around...)

I posted the same in the UK thread as well

I'm doing "studieforberedende program med realfag" (Study preparation program with natural sciences.)

I wanted Chemistry and Maths, but got Chemistry and Nynorsk.

May I show my complete naivity and ask what exactly is Year 13? Us southern-hemispherians only go to Year 12. Good luck to everyone regardless

I guess if you split Year 12 into two? I mean, we (when I was in the UK) had Lower and Upper Sixth form.

In France it goes, Maternelle, CE1, CE2, CM1, CM2, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Terminale. But you can redo years here if you don't do too well. I redid 3eme when I moved here just to pick up the lingo.

It's actually year 3 in the upper secondary education. Similar to the level of freshman students in the US. We have:

Compulsary:
- 7 years of mandatory primary education
- 3 years of mandatory lower secondary education

And then three options: (Upper secondary education.)
- 2 years of vocational school + 2 years as a trainee
- 3 years of general studies, with either focus on natural sciences, art, social studies or economy related studies
- 3 years of a programme for music, dance and drama (choosing one later on...)
- 3 years of a sports programme

The three latter give a general certification that allows you to apply for universities in Norway. Some programmes require for instance natural science math or that you've taken the music programme in upper secondary.
