Gaaahh! I have majorly messed up!
(#) aweirdtree 2011-12-19 12:09:16 PMhaha, i didn't even get that new system you cleared out :D but i guess that's just because i'm Finnish and therefore couldn't understand anything about the school system in UK or USA even if i wanted to (and i do, actually xd). and i know how much little (or sometimes a bit bigger) mistakes like that can bug the hell out of you; i'm myself just like that, i want facts to be correct in stories... even if no one else noticed them :D haha, whatever, just do the corrections as you like and update more soon! (:

14-15 is freshman year, 9th grade
15-16 is sophomore year, 10th grade
17-18 is Junior year, 11th grade
18-19(ish) is senior year, 12th grade
You generally turn 18 in your senior year, but the chart is confusing, I know. You spend most of your time being the first number, I believe. I'm not to sure, I haven't properly been to high school yet. But I am American. Heh. And people do get held back, needing only a few credits and such. I'd also like to tell you that exclusion doesn't exist in America. You are either expelled, suspended or given detention. In school suspensions are rare but do exist. Ha I know weirdness like this, being American and all. XP
Author's responseOkaaaay - so my story is really wrong! No, thanks for telling me - now I can correct and with any luck, won't make the same mistake again.
