Well in England we do school 5 days a week, mon-fri (some schools in France miss Wednesday I think?), starting around 8.30-9 and finishing around 3-4 (most schools)
In my school we do 5 lessons a day, but starting with registration in our forms where we just see who's in school on that day. Then we go go first lesson (1hr) and second lesson (1hr). Then its break time, where we have about 25 minhtes . then another 2 lessons, before lunch (25 mins). In our school, we just have a snack bar, where we can buy pizza/chips/burger (I hate school food!!) I think in France you have like a proper big lunch (That's what my teacher told me) with 2\3 courses so its pretty diferent .
Then we have one last lesson and its home time!

If you were born in 1999 you'd either be in year 9 (if you were born after September 1999) or year 10 (if you were born before September 1999)
In year 9 you choose what GCSE to do, and (most commonly) will start studying for them in year 10, and will do most exams at the end of year 11 (some will do them in year 9 or 10)
For a levels I think you only study the subjects you choose to study, however I'm year 9 so dont take my word for it!

During your GCSE (year 10 , Year 11) do you keep taking tests during the years or do u take them at the end of year 9 and where can i find the GCSE options , do all the schools have the same??

You take all of your GCSE exams at the end of Year 11 (16 years old).
After, you pick your A-Levels. These can be any subject, normally 3-4.
You study these for two years and take your final exams in Year 13 (18 years old).
