Default Adaptability Query

My wife has completed 13 years full time education (ages 4-17) to A Level standard in the UK. Can anyone tell us if A levels count as post secondary education and whether it would result in 3 points in the adaptability section?

May thanks in advance....

A levels is just a secondary education (high school). Sorry, but no points
in the Adaptability factor.

Unfortunately, it won't. This is not post secondary education, it is
just secondary (high school). Post secondary would consist of university,
for example.

Good luck.

Default A level education in Britain - points?

Sorry to say this Andrew but you are wrong - now there's a novelty! Let me
lay this ghost to rest once and for all. The age to finish compulsory school
in Britain is usually16 years old. Anyone who elects to stay at college (not
school) and completes "further education" past this may well be able to
claim points. Just because someone added extra time directly onto the end
of their high school career is no reason to discount this.

The normal compulsory schooling in Britain is 12 full school years
(September to July) so it looks like there may be one year of further
"elected" education here.

However, age cannot determine the number of years education as some pupils
start education up to 10 months later than others and therefore may well be
17 when they leave and not 16. You need to compute from when school was
started to when it was finished. That gives you the number of school years.
I am surprised that full A levels were achieved in one academic year unless
your wife was exceptionally bright. Are you sure they were not AS levels or
did she only do one year out of the two required (in which case no A level
here)?

I did some A levels in my 30's and there is no way that could ever be
classed as high school.

I realise that Andrew is clued up when it comes to Canadian education but
please allow me this one amendment - after all I was born and raised here
and went through the schooling system.

Kind regards
BJ

As far as Canadian immigration is concerned A level is just a secondary
education, regardless what you think it may be, sorry.
