How qualified are we?

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Ask me again in a year, and I'll have a B.S. :D

Maybe add an option that says Some College, or Student/In College....

I have my qualifications in knowing all sporting rules so that I can cheer on Aussies in their chosen sport. How to cook a BBQ correctly. What temperature beer should be served at. BS - cos every Aussie has to get that qualification or they get deported to NZ :P

GCSEs, a couple of A levels and am studying for the degree.

Yes.. The Dutch option :mrgreen:

Seriously.. I've got what's called HBO think and work level..
Don't really have the papers for it because I failed the course..
I failed not because of a lack of knowledge but more a lack of perseverance..

Schools are as follows (the school system changed after that)..

basic school ( 6-12 y/o)
LTS (12-16 y/o) - Lower level Technical School, basic electro/electronics
MTS (16 - 20 y/o) - Medium level Technical School, Technical Computer Study (80% hardware 20% software)
HTS or TH (20 -24 y/o) - High level Technical School, Technical Computer Study

Never finished the TH though.. Got out at 22.. Got drafted after that..
