Spanish term or phrase:bachillerato
I am translating a high school report card from Colegio Internacional SEK Las Americas. I am curious about the term which is listed as follows Curso 4 Bachillerato/a and then underneath it says ciclo bachillerato.. Would this be saying that the individual is a high school senior? and the ciclo would be the level?
Explanation: This term is used in the UK to refer to a secondary education system and diploma with a broader range of subjects covered compared to the narrower traditional A level system of only three or four subjects studied.
There are schools in the UK offering secondary education based on the baccalaureate model, often called International Baccalaureate Diploma, which is accepted by some if not most of the universities as an alternative qualification to A levels for entry to higher education.
A google search for this term will give many examples.
