    My DD got 3A* 3A and 4B - really delighted and proud of her. She is going to college to do A levels in German, English Lit, History, Economics and Gen Studies. We went to complete her enrolment today and they have put her on the Gifted & Talented Oxbridge applicants programme.

    She can be a real pain..but I am so proud of her today :)

    Do College and University mean the same thing in the UK or are they different?

    No..they are different, John.

    We have a 'secondary' school education (age 11-16) which gets you GCSEs (General Certificates of Secondary Education) which DD has just done. You can then stay at your existing school for 'sixth form' or go to college which is two years at the end of which you do A Levels (Advanced Level). After that providing you get good enough grades you can go to University to do a 'Degree' which can vary in length from three years on wards e.g the degree DD wants to do is four years. That is when you graduate over here. You can then do a further 'post graduate' course etc ..... So my DD will be 23 before she finishes

    I have nieces and nephews who have lived in US all their lives so know that your system is totally different :)

    I knew the UK school system was different. Thanks for the explanation Debbie.
