Here’s a short explanation of the terms that are used below:

At the end of 8 years of primary school, having an average age of 12 years old, children have to make a final test that includes multiple subjects. This test will give you a result between 500 and 550. Depending on the result you get, you’ll be advised a certain high school level. Schools stopped using the CITO test since 2014. It’s now called the ‘final test for primary education’.
