The Hungarian school system:
The school career in Hungary starts with four or eight years in elementary school, after that the students can choose between three different models:
- Four or five more years on a high school, a specialised high school or a specialised middle school
- After four years in elementary school students can switch to a high school for eight more years
- Six years in elementary school, after which students can switch to a high school for six more years
The high school ends with final exams and graduation. There are also specialised high schools where you can not only get the same degree as on a high school but aswell are prepared for a specific job. Because of this, the specialised high school takes a year longer.
The compulsory school attendance ends at the age of sixteen.
