Year Group Equivalence

Schools around the world use different numbering conventions as well as follow different curriculums. It is common to find North American schools and those following the US Curriculum using a 12 year numbering format, and British schools and those following the National Curriculum for England and Wales using a 13 year numbering format. In addition, there are other numbering conventions as well as those mentioned. In the UAE there are many schools offering different curriculums and following different numbering conventions. Below is a table indicating Raffles International School numbering convention and the equivalent numbered class in schools following a 12 Grade numbering convention. RIS follows the 13 Year system.
