Intellectual

Serbia is a country with many educated people. Some jobs they have are teachers, lawyers, engineers, doctors, professors, and others. Pre-school and kindergarten are necessary, which do not cost you anything, and it's pretty similar to America. In elementary school, there are only four grade levels, from first grade to fourth. Middle school is fifth school to eighth. Serbia also has a different grading system compared to America. Most people in America use the grading system of 0-100, while 70 is the failing grade, at least in Texas. Some places have other failing grades. In Serbia, they have a grading scale of 1-5, with 2 being the failing grade.
