I'm British, but the school I attended was a high school. I know in Britain we also call it secondary school.

When did the extra years come into effect? I'm quite sure they did not exist when I was at school. Then again, I never attended it much. But, I do recall some people going on to further education, when it wasn't mandatory.

Not every school has a sixth form and so students may need to move to one that does, or go to a college, in order to take A levels/IB/BTECs from age 16 to 18

You mean university? Because in the UK, college means something else.

Then, you would know that college is different to university in the UK. Right?

College is optional and I’m pretty sure they don’t refer to college students by years 12/13, only sixth form students. Don’t think anyone was objecting the existence of college 10 years ago..

They're on about college as in 16-18 education equivalent to 6th form, ie where you do A levels or equivalent to get into university.

Yes, I did get confused, and I apologise for any offence caused. But, I thought he was American at first, and using Americanism words such as college to refer to university, and all I meant was college is something different in the UK.
