Just wondering how the 'exam' systems differ between countries. in the UK you complete "GCSEs' when you are in Y11 (16 years old) and A levels when you are in Y13 (18 years old)

Here are the exams that I have next year:

GCSE English Language 2 exams
GCSE English Literature 2 exams
GCSE Mathematics 3 exams
GCSE Religious Studies 4 exams
GCSE Core Science 3 exams + 1 controlled assessment
GCSE Additional Science 3 exams + 1 controlled assessment
GCSE Geography 2 exams + 1 controlled assessment
GCSE French 2 exams + 4 controlled assessments
GCSE Computing 1 exam + 2 controlled assessments.

Wait, what kind of exams are these? What's their purpose?

In Brazil you only have one national exam, the ENEM, and it's not even mandatory. I never knew how many tests/exams I would take during my normal classes in highschool either, everything was somewhat improvised.

My 2nd year in college at UNIFESP didn't start yet, so I don't know. Last year, we had 2+3+3+3+3+2+3+3+6 = 28 tests/exams total

The ones I was referring to where our school 'leaving' exams, so employers/sixth forms can look at where you're at :)
