Sri Lanka offers free, state funded education at all levels, including the higher education levels. Primary school, which is grades one through five, is integrated, and students learn basic math and language skills. Exams must be passed to move on. Junior secondary school is grades six to nine. Students study such subjects as their primary language, English classes, math, and religion. They are subject to assessment tests, projects and schoolwork throughout each year. Senior secondary school, grades ten and eleven, focuses mainly on preparing students for the General Certificate of Education exam. For those who wish to attend higher education, they go on for another two years of additional schooling before entering a university.
