I'm from Italy, so education is a bit different.
I'm now studying for a Bachelor's in chemistry, willing to continue for the Master's.

TBH I never actually graduated HS.
It's because my school was a total mess. I was sick all the time but my teachers didn't believe me. They decided I was just a "Bad kid" and literally threw me in the cornoer and forgot about me. They gave me a diploma after 5 yrs so they wouldn't have to deal with my family yelling at them anymore.

But fuck primary school. They don't teach you anything.

I have a gen ed AA and...some law. ( I dunno what you call it-a couple classes away from a BA)

Some English lit A level from 6th form college.

But I struggled at school and then got kicked out once I got to secondary (UK high school) and sent to a behavioural unit in a town not far from where I live. I did poorly in all my exams for both school and college and so now I work entry level jobs to get by.

Everything else comes from self-teaching, which I've found far more informative than my education. Although I'm currently looking for a way to get a better education and progress to better paying jobs, so I may need some help on that front, especially given that I'm now 28.

I'm basically stuck at 10 years old.

AA - completed
BA in psychology/Minor: cognitive science - dropped out with 2 semesters left to enter tech school, which I graduated from.

I would definitely have not gone to college and went straight to tech if I had to do it over again.

I know of at least 4, one NOT an INTJ.

I suppose we could turn this from a poll into a guessing game.

Though I like to think finishing the two original Fallout games counts as higher education too. :happy2:;)

Our system here in Germany was a bit different but I have a double Diplom in translation and interpreting. Those are technically two seperate careers but easy to combine.

You needed about 5 years at university for a Diplom (that was before we switched to the Bachelor and Master system). I needed a little longer because I spent a year abroad and am a major slacker.
