UK vs Australian highschool education system
Rosie R posted a topic in EducationHi guys! I know that this is a wide question, and I don't expect thorough answers as I will be doing my own research on it I just thought I'd ask if there are any drastic/obvious differences in the education system/school life in Australian secondary schools compared to UK ones? Is there anything that I need to be mindful of/take into consideration?) I don't necessarily mean bad things either, but things that could potentially surprise me when starting a new school? Anything at all would be appreciated! Thanks!
What do I need to know/bring from my UK secondary school before applying to an Oz secondary school?
Rosie R posted a topic in EducationHi guys! This isn't super serious as I'm sure we'll manage, but I thought I would ask just in case I can get some firsthand tips and advice! I am due to complete UK highschool / my GCSEs around june/july time this year, and because of situations at home here in the UK, I believe I will be moving to Australia after I finish my GCSEs (so I will be 16). I was just wondering (as I know GCSEs don't really transfer well in the Australian education system) what sort of information/reports should I have from my UK school when applying to an Australian secondary school? What sort of information will they be likely to ask me to get a grasp of my skills etc. as a student? Progress reports? Teacher reports? Is it worth keeping a record of my assessment grades? Should I even bring physical/digital copies of actual assessments/tests? Any info would be greatly appreciated just to give me an idea of the sort of things Australian secondary schools will be looking for. Also; I think I will be moving to somewhere in NSW so if you have any info specifically for secondary schools in that state, feel free -- however any general info that will most likely apply to the majority of schools in Oz would be great. Thanks!
