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.
