examinations to be accepted for a university place. At university, (or
polytechnic) people study for a degree. In general, the first degree is awarded after
3-4 years study and success in examinations and is either a BA (Bachelor of Arts)
or a B.Sc. (Bachelor of Science).If you are awarded Honours it means your degree
is of a higher standard than ordinary pass. Students can then do further courses for
special subjects such as medicine or law and get the appropriate qualification or
after another year or two of study and examinations in their chosen subject at
university they can achieve the second degree, an MA (Master of Arts) or MSc
(Master of Sciences). Finally, if they undertake research work and produce a thesis,
after another few years, they can receive the third, highest level degree, the PhD

TEXT TWO
All children in Britain between the ages of 5 and 16 must, by law, attend school or
be otherwise educated in a way approved by the local education authority. After
the age of 16 a growing proportion are staying on voluntary at school, some until
18 or 19, the age of entry into higher education in Universities and Polytechnics.
The majority of schools in Britain are supported by public funds, and the education
provided is free. But there is also a small sector which includes public schools
where parents have to pay fees to send their children. All state schools include
primary schools, for children aged up to 11 years (12 in Scotland), and secondary
schools. The timetable generally goes from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. with a lunch
break of about 1 ½ hours. Many students have lunch at school.
Until recently, secondary schools were divided into grammar and secondary
modern. During the early 160s, comprehensive schools were also introduced.
Comprehensives are schools where pupils of all abilities are educated together.
Many local education authorities are now in the process of changing completely to
comprehensive education.(1135)
