Generally these are heat of the moment things which both the sides get over soon. Very very rarely does it affect any long term business relationship.

Re: So, what's up?

No, I had 2 cybercafes.

Anyway, guys, please explain the American education system to me. What is this about "graduating high school" ?? Is that matric ? or HSC ? And what do they call "college" ? That college is not B.A./B.Com. etc, is it ?

Students enroll in 1st grade (standard) at the age of 6. That means, when they finish high school, they're 18 (or about to be).

High School is grades (standards) 9-12. Completion of 12th grade is called the high school graduation. It is just the celebration of finishing this important milestone, and moving on to college/university, and to some extent adulthood.

After high school comes college, generally refers to higher education. There are different designations for different higher ed institutions: junior college, college, university. Often times, university refers to a more prestigious institution either because of the programs they offer or their own history. There are private colleges and universities as well as public.

Almost all of the colleges require four-year equivalent of education to earn a bachelors degree: BA or BS. Additional two-years or so would earn you a masters (MS). And then a few more years to become a doctor, lawyer, etc.

Not all kids finish high school. Not all who finish high school go to college. Not all who start college finish college.

I'll leave it at this, but I'm sure this is enough to spark more curiosity... so ask away

p.s. there are also kindergarten graduation/promotions for kids moving on to 1st grade
