    Probably US... UK system isn't that hard like all you need to do is revise. In the US im sure its the same but judging by Television they have stuff like staying behind a year if you fail, and summer schools.

    On the other hand, I've met Americans that have come to study for a bit on my course at uni, and they're always amazed at how hard our tests are - getting 70% here would be the equivalent of getting 98% there.

    Probably UK I guess. I have the feeling A levels are one of the most respected secondary school qualifications out there. But then again, no one but someone who has done both can really judge on this matter.
