Secondary education in the UK usually starts at the age of 11. From the ages of 11 to 14, students will study a broad range of subjects such as Music, Maths, Science, and English. At the age of 14 students start to prepare for a set of exams known as GCSE. When preparing for their GCSEs, international students will take three core subjects (English, Maths, and Science) and choose other additional subjects that they would like to take. Additional subjects range from foreign languages such as French, Spanish or German to more professional subjects like Business Studies, Design, and Technology. Most students choose between 4 to 6 additional subjects.
