Just wanted to know what the average guitar player educational lvl is. here's my story, also try to tell something about the school system in your country!!


In Holland you can devide the degree's on elementary in three levels:
MAVO, HAVO and VWO

Mavo is for people who are going to be woodworker or garagekeeper, nothing wrong with. I respect those guys, working their buts off! you're doing a good job!

HAVO is the degree needed for higher education on the "high schools" . You need it to get the degree just under university. You can almost achieve everything with it.


VWO, this study takes six years (HAVO is 5 and MAVO is 4 years). From VWO you can go directly to the university. I'm in VWO, 3th grade and I'm 14 now, I could go to uni when I'm 17 tongue.gif .

I think I'm gonna have a gap year between my VWO and university, go to australia or something like that tongue.gif maybe work for GMC international which will exist in several years!!

Standard grades, five 1's and three 2's (1 is an A, 2 is a B, theres no A*), doing five Highers atm (A level equivalent).

Got no idea what I'm going to do after school, although I'm being pressured into something like journalism.

But the truth is I cant really be bothered doing anything but music, which I have no qualifications in... sad.gif

Lucky you! smile.gif

Reading all the education-related stuff of each person here i am more and more sure that each one of us has his own path to his goals and it can't be planned.

Not proud about this, but No job and only Comprehensive school...

I was studying in vocational school to be an electrician but, after awhile I grew to really hate that...
next I was studying to be a Catering chef but, same thing... could not stand it.
I have no idea what to do next... Conservatory would be something I would surely enjoy.

Anyway I think it's hard to find work in Finland with only comprehensive school and if you do find, you probably can't hold on to it for long...

Cool, lots of hard studiers here!

Nothing so grand for me school stuff, 8 CSE`s (before GCSE`s started) Maths, English, English Lit, Technical Drawing, Woodwork, Music, Geography, Physics all various "average" grades laugh.gif

started work career in a metal fabrication workshop, leading on to agricultural mechacnics, breakdowns, servicing etc, did an "auto electricians" course for this, which helped me out with car repairs etc.

Moved off into various office "Sales" positions including Car sales that I really enjoyed, but decided I wanted to go out on the road so did a Sales rep`s job selling paint for a while before landing this job just as office based sales in a fuel company, but with a change around in the company and expansion new roles where up for grabs, so needing to earn more money of course I plucked for the Health & safety Officer role that was available, so went off and did a whopping mega brain blowing certified course in Occupational Health & Safety which I had to pass or I wouldnt get the job, luckily passed so thats what I`ve been doing ever since, incredibly boring and tedious but pays well and I get my car subsidised so I guess its worth it laugh.gif Plus I met my wife through work so thats a pretty big bonus too smile.gif
