    Primary school


    Years: 7 years of primary education for ages 7-13, generally taught in Kiswahili.


    Enrolment rates: The abolition of fees in primary schools in 2001, coupled with the compulsory requirement that parents/guardians send all children to school, has meant that 94 percent of children aged 7 to 13 years were enrolled in primary school in 2011, compared with only 59 percent in 2000.


    Secondary school


    Years: In Tanzania, there is 4 years of secondary ordinary level education (forms 1 to 4) followed by 2 years of secondary advanced level education (forms 5 and 6). Forms 1 to 6 are equivalent to years 7 to 12 in Australia. Secondary school is taught in English as mandated by the Government.


    Students complete national exams after form 2 and form 4. Students successful in reaching the pass marks for form 4 in certain courses can continue onto forms 5 and 6.


    Enrolment: Net secondary school enrolment has expanded quickly in recent years- from just 6 percent in 2000 to over 30 percent by 2011.
