Diploma Evaluation- High School Diploma

The U.S. and Canadian high school educational systems are very similar. Therefore, a Canadian high school diploma is considered the equivalence of a U.S. high school diploma. UK high school diplomas are usually counted as the equivalence to a U.S. high school diploma. High school diplomas are given upon completion of A Levels and GCSE Levels. This is similar to AP credits given in U.S. schools. In India, students take Standard XII examinations during their 11th and 12th years and passing marks allow students access to university admissions. A high school diploma in India with passing examination marks is usually considered equivalent to a U.S. high school diploma.
