French term or phrase:certificat d'études
"J’ai failli oublier de vous dire que la place Sidi Baïan était bordée à droite par la rue Bab Suika, et cette rue est très importante. Dans cette rue, à 50 mètres de notre maison, il y avait l’école où ma mère avait obtenu son ***certificat d’étude***. Ce fut l’évènement chez mes grands-parents, un grand moment de bonheur et de fierté."
This is about Tunisia. The son of the mother in question was born in 1943, if that helps.
Does the term refer to a primary, secondary, or third-level cert?
Otherwise I'll have to use a vague, cover-all solution like "studies certificate" (suggestions welcome for this option also).
Thanks. Have a nice weekend, y'all.
(I suppose I could do research into the school located in the street in question, but I imagine that that would take "quite a while"!)
