Education / Pedagogy
Portuguese term or phrase: terceiro ano
PT-PT. I'm trying to find out the equivalent in the U.S. and/or UK academic systems.

"Este curso foi ministrado no final do ano lectivo de 2005/ 2006 num regime de full-time durante três semanas, para uma população de sessenta alunos que haviam concluído o terceiro ano, escolhidos com a colaboração do Ministério da Educação."

Thanks in advance!

12 grade (or grade 12) - see explanation bellow


Explanation:
Se você está falando do 3o. ano do ensino médio (ou segundo grau), que no caso do Brasil é o último ano de secondary education (or high school), eu acho que o equivalente seria 12 grade dos USA/Canadá (já que eles não reiniciam a contagem do anos, como nós fazemos). Mas tem uma ressalva, no total temos 11 ensino básico e ensino secundário, enquanto que eles totalizam 12... então não posso definir com absoluta certeza...

Veja a explicação da wiki para a estrutura em vários países. No final do texto tem uma observação sobre o Brasil.
