English term or phrase: Highers; Certificate of Sixth Year Studies
I'm looking for the German translations/equivalents for "Highers" and "Certificate of Sixth Year Studies". In the Scottish education system, you sat your Highers in 5th year at the age of 17 and then your Certificate of Sixth Year Studies in 6th year at the age of 18 before going to university.
Anyone got any idea ?
