Educational system

The school system in Tanzania is divided into three basic levels. A seven-year free primary school is followed by a four-year, now free secondary school. The student can then continue for another two years at a paid high school. In all schools, however, certain costs are associated with attendance, e.g. school uniform, textbooks and exams. The secondary school exams roughly correspond to the German secondary school certificate, the completion of a paid two-year secondary school is a condition for studying at a university.
