I've finished grammar school two years ago, but from the top of my head I think I had about 20 different subjects, or so. Let's see:

For all four years: Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Slovak, Serbian, English, Russian, P.E., History, Computer Science;
For three years: Geography;
For two years: Latin, Art, Music, Sociology, Philosophy, Civil Rights (I think it's a correct translation, it was an alternate to Theology).

Ex-Yugoslavian countries pretty much have the same system: 2 years kindergarten, 8 years elementary, 3-4 years high school (depends on the type of high school; grammar school is 4 years for example).

I still don't know exactly about an university. I dropped out of the last university because I couldn't afford it, so now I plan to go to Slovakia where it is for free.

I don't want to live in res if I can possibly avoid it. My brother lives in a house just off campus, for example.

Well yeah. I mean, all you pay is for a place to live, for food, internet, books, etc. You don't pay for studying at a university. If you are a foreigner or a Slovak born and living outside of Slovakia you also have greater chances of getting a scholarship, which will pretty much cover ALL of your expenses. My brother is studying economy and management there and doesn't have financial problems. So I plan to go there too.

That sounds like the way it is in Scandinavia.

If you're a foreigner, you probably have to demonstrate proficiency in the Slovak language in order to apply.

I don't know. I'll need to ask my brother, but he mentioned they have several students who don't speak Slovak that well at all. I think you get courses in Slovak while you study there.

Wow, my school doesn't even let me take this many classes. Are you going to be a sophomore in high school?
