What is the educational level of an 8 year old child in different countries? Find the answer and many more with this chart showing the correspondence between grade levels and ages of children in different parts of the world.

Important warning: this table does not necessarily show equivalences in terms of school programs and students' knowledge. For example, a 3rd grade child in Germany will not automatically advance to 3rd grade if he moves to Quebec. Although the Quebec Ministry of Education has established equivalences for all school levels with France and Belgium, the final decision will be made by the service center or the school, after evaluation.
