      Hey, different countries have different education systems and examinations. The principle of studying lots of different subjects (maths, science, your native language, additional languages, history, geography, etc) are very similar. We are very lucky in England to have our education system, as every child can attend school. Hopefully, governments will provide better funds to help improve resources. However, sadly in some countries not everyone has the opportunity to go to school.

      As well as what Laura has said, the education systems can also be quite similar from country to country. For example, you can use all your grades from GCSE and A-level in the UK to apply to university in Europe. So if you wanted to go and study abroad when you’re older you can!

      A lot of the teaching and learning methods in other countries are similar from what I have experienced, but there’s always small differences. Because science is so international nowadays, I think that these similarities are a good thing!
