Eleventh grade is the eleventh, and for some countries final, grade of secondary schools. Students are typically 16 or 17 years of age, depending on the country and the students' birthdays. They may also be 15 or 18


In the Canadianmarker province of Quebecmarker, Grade 11 (sec. 5) is the final year of secondary education, followed by CEGEP. In all other provinces a student continues to the 12th grade.


In Colombiamarker, the eleventh grade is the last year in secondary education. In this year all students are required to do an internship in any subject field. To differentiate from University's internship, the practice is called Alphabetisation and most of the time is related to community services such as teaching in schools, assisting hospitals or libraries. Students also do the ICFES National Test and presents to the draft for the Colombian Army. As, per law, the army cannot recruit underage students and most of eleventh graders are between 16-17, the draft is almost changed for the payment of a monetary fee

England and Wales

In England and Wales, Year 11 is taken when aged 15-16, and is the main GCSE year. Year 12 or Lower Sixth (VI) is comparable to the 11th grade of other systems. It is the sixth and penultimate year of secondary education. It is not compulsory for somebody who entered secondary school before September 2008 to attend these last two years. Successful completion generally results in awarding of A-Level qualifications. During Year 12, two Advanced Supplementary units are completed (either written exams, coursework or a mixture, depending on subject). Usually four subjects are taken with some students taking three or five. Most often three subjects are taken in Year 13 or Upper Sixth (VI), an additional two units must be taken per subject, to complete the A-Levels.


In Francemarker, the equivalent is the Première, which is the penultimate year of secondary education in that country (followed by the Terminale).


In Irelandmarker, it is the third year of Secondary School (for 14-16 year olds). It is also the final year of the Junior Cycle of Secondary School and students have to sit for the Junior Certificate examination which is an educational qualification awarded in Ireland by the Department of Education. Students can take up to 12 Subjects for this exam but typically choose 9. Four subjects are mandatory (Maths, English, Irish, Civic, Social and Political Education). Optional subjects, of which 4 have to be taken, include Science, Technology, Business Studies, German, French, Geography, History, Spanish, Art, Music, Classical Studies, Metalwork and Woodwork.

Northern Ireland

The Northern Irelandmarker system is similar to the English one at this age. Lower Sixth Form (Year 13), pupils start on a two-year course at the end of which they will hopefully have gained three 'A' Levels in their chosen subjects.


In Scotland this Fifth Year (of secondary education) is also optional, but pupils will generally sit Intermediates or Higher Highers being the entry requirement for university. It will optionally be followed by a final Sixth Year.


In some parts of Mexicomarker, the eleventh grade is the 2nd year of high school,(sophomore).

United States

In the United Statesmarker, many students take the SAT Reasoning Test and/or ACT in the second half of their 11th-grade year. Typically during this year, students interested in attending higher education facilities tend to search at around the second part of that year.

In the United States, a student at this grade is typically referred to as a junior .

Mathematics students usually take algebra II, but classes like trigonometry or pre-calculus are sometimes offered for students who wish to take Advanced Placement math classes their senior year. Depending on the location there may be a combination of any of the listed subjects. They may also take easier courses such as algebra I and geometry if they do not have the required prerequisites for the more advanced courses that are listed above. Students who are advanced in mathematics often take calculus or statistics.

In English class, a college-preparatory curriculum would also include American literature. Often, English literature (also referred to as British literature) is taught in the junior year of high school.

In a social studies curriculum, eleventh graders in the United States are usually taught US history or the world from the 1870s to the 21st Century. They may also learn more advanced world culture and geography knowledge along with some more advanced social studies such as psychology and government.

Many eleventh graders in the United States opt to take a foreign language, even though it is not required in many secondary curricula.

While normally followed by twelfth grade, some colleges will accept excelling students out of this grade as part of an early college entrance program.
