Mongolian term or phrase: Бүрэн дунд боловсрол
What is the English equivalent for this today? The certificates I'm working on are from 2006-2008.

Actually I'm curious about the whole educational system. When I lived in Mongolia, it used to be that Ерөнхий боловсрол was 10 years. It's 11 now right? How are these 11 years sub-divided into бага/дунд etc. Does бүрэн бус дунд exist anymore? Many questions... Could anyone help me understand this more clearly? Any good clear websites explaining the current system?

Secondary education
Explanation:
I translate such certificates as "Certificate of Secondary Education".
With regards to the educational system in Mongolia, it is 12 years now and is divided into "Бага" (1-5), "Дунд" (6-9), and "Ахлах" (10-12).

No, the certificate certify completion of 11/12 years of school, i.e. full secondary education (depending on the year of graduation).
Secondary education covers all level secondary schools (primary, junior high and high etc) in the USA, so it is the Mongolian equivalent.)

"Дунд" (6-9) is an equivalent of "junior high" of the US.
