American high school diploma( & HSD:SAT II)
      .     Equating the SAT II diploma issued by a private education institution as from 1998.
  ·        passing seven courses of SAT II
  ·        SAT II is equated with the general secondary school certificate, scientific track if the student passes three scientific courses, otherwise it is equated with the literary track.

·        English language (writing-in-English skill, English literature), history and social studies (American history, social studies, world history, history).
·        mathematics: Math Level I & IC & IIC.
·        linguistics (French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Spanish, Chinese).
·        sciences (physics, chemistry).
    In view of the difference in evaluating school certificates coupled with SAT II, the following must be considered:
  ·        A mark which is below 450 will not be reckoned within the reckoned subjects in the SAT II test.
  ·        The subject mark in SAT II is divided on its maximum limit 800 and multiplied by 100.
  ·        The highest marks of seven subjects of the SAT II test will be added to the subjects of grade 12. The total will be divided on 13 (number of subjects in SAT II + number of school subjects).
   Marks scored by the student in school for grade 2:

Subject Title
Maximum Limit
Subject Percentage
1. Arabic
2. English
3. History
4. Mathematics
5. Physics
6. Chemistry

   Percentages of subjects studied by the student for SAT II will be added to school subjects and divided on the number of subjects as follows:
56.3+57.5+65+53.8+58.8+62.5+78.8+85+90+95+91+92.5+90 =893.6
secondary school average: 976 = 75.1% 13
   Together with ascertaining that a SCORE RANGE exists for each subject of SAT II studied by the student upon admitting him in the university. This percentage varies from one student to another.

·   ordinary level whose period is 11 years.
·   Advanced level whose period is 2 years.

These two certificates have three levels:
·      ordinary level.
·     Advanced level.
·     Advanced subsidiary level for one year after the first two levels.
Assessment is based on a scale of five grades:
A       95
B       85
C       75
D       65
E       55

1.     the secondary track is determined if the student has studied at least four scientific subjects of the total subjects, the secondary track will be considered scientific, but if otherwise, it will be considered literary.
2.     Reckoning the average
Example: the student has scored the following marks:
Arabic                  30/50
English                 40/50
Biology                35/50
Chemistry            34/50
Mathematics         32/50
Total marks    = 203
Maximum limit = 50 × 6 = 300
                                      total marks scored by the student
General average = ____________________________________
                                             total of maximum unit
General average = 203 / 300% = 67.7%
Russian general secondary school certificate

If the transcript contains literary subjects, the track will be literary.
The mark maximum limit: 5
Passing mark minimum limit: 3
                         total marks scored by the student × 20%
