Hi!

>I know you do A-levels if you are college bound, but I never actually got a grip on what it means. What types of courses? What type of exam afterward (I always hear of 'passing the A-levels).

You start A-levels when you're 16 and finish at 18, the first year is called AS, the second year is called A2. Most people do three A-levels, either at school (the one that they've been at since they were 11) or at a 'sixth form' college. You sit exams (usually about 90 minutes) in January and June in the first year to get AS levels, most people continue into the second year to convert their AS levels into A levels. Science subjects consist of six modules, each with a short exam. The final results depend mainly on the exams but there's some 'course work' too, usually practical write-ups for science subjects. Not sure about the arts - I didn't take any!

Best regards,
Ed.

PS. You don't look stupid at all :-)
