German term or phrase: Standard VI Certificate
I have a school leaving report here from the Caribbean island St. Lucia. Its title is "Standard VI certificate", and the person must have been around 15 or 16 years old when he received it.
Could anyone tell me an equivalent or comparable German, British or American school qualification/grade?
St. Lucia was a British colony before it became independet, so I guess the school system is comparable to the British educational system.
Thanks a lot in advance. Any comments/suggestions in English or German highly appreciated.

Explanation:
St Lucia is in the Virgin Islands in the Carribean. I think that the VI certificate referred to is the Standard Virgin Islands Education Certificate, approximately equivalent to our GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education), which is obtained by examination at the age of 16.

Thank you for your help. Just one thing: St. Lucia is definitely not part of the Virgin Islands, but an independent country which is geographically part of the Windward Islands.
