Hi, we are moving to Dubbo from the UK later this year.
My eldest DS is 17 (born 11/98) and will finish first year of college here in July before we leave.
He opted for a music BTEC course rather than the more academic 'A' levels (which they take at 18), and has regretted it a bit, so wouldn't mind starting over if necessary, he got good mark in his GCSEs which they take at 16 here. I am struggling to understand how the years/exams compare, so I have lots of questions, sorry-
What year would he be in here, and how does the end of school transition to Uni work?
Are there standard exams he needs to get in?
Would he be able to redo a year to get a qualification that could take him to Uni to do a degree?
He was planning to do a music degree here, the music course he has been doing would have led straight in to that here (assuming he got good grades!), I think there is a music college in Dubbo, does anyone know of it?
Thanks so much if you can help!
