Education Systems In The US

The US happens to be one of the most wanted places as far as education is concerned and is in high demand in terms of education because it has some of the best educational institutions in the world. Students who want to study in the US or the UK could look into several universities to see what suits them best. While the procedure for admission is different for each university, there are some broad factors that decide whether the student can get admission in a particular university. As far as the US is concerned schools districts can be differentiated into:
· Elementary schools for kindergarten students till the fifth grade
· Middle schools for students from the sixth to the eighth grade
· High schools for students from ninth to the twelfth grade
As far as University education is concerned, the admission criteria vary from one university to another. Usual a concept is known as the Grade Point Average (GPA) is seen as an important criterion when it comes to admission to universities in the US. The GPA is based on the grades that the student has got in high school and the admission procedure usually includes the SAT scores as well as a personal interview.

How The Education System Works In The US

In the US, the education system is differentiated into various levels starting from elementary school, middle school, and high school. Usually, the subjects in school include arithmetic, English, science, and history among other subjects. School education means that all the students are assessed on the basis of certain subjects. School education is very different from a college education. Once high school is done, it is up to the student to decide what subject he or she wants to specialize in. It could be medicine, fine arts, economics or science. In the US, colleges are based on what is known as the “credit hour” where there are certain hours fixed for certain subjects such as history or art and so on. The student who decides to go to college has to choose to “major” in a particular subject that he or she wants to learn. College for a first-year students is different from that of a second-year students. The idea of majoring in a particular subject is to make sure that the student has enough knowledge in a particular subject (for instance, a major in civil engineering or physics). Thus it can be seen that college life in the US is different from school life.
