Anglų kalbėjimo potemės 2016. Education in lithuania
Nowadays good education is very important if you want to achieve your goals, to have a good job and be successful in the modern competitive society. I would like to talk about education system of Lithuania.
First of all, the current system of secondary education is comprised of primary school (1st to 4th forms), basic school (5th to 10th forms), secondary school (11th to 12th forms) and 4 years of gymnasium corresponding to the 9th to 12th forms. There are also special education institutions for children with special needs and youth schools which provide basic education. Secondary education ends in taking one compulsory and at least one optional examination. Successful students are awarded a School Leaving Certificate. Education is free in all state secondary schools.
Secondly, is compulsory between the age of 6 and 16 for Lithuanian citizens and for children with permanent or temporary residence permits. Pupils can stay at school for twelve years but some of them leave school having finished the tenth form.
