The state of Massachusetts has something similar to that, but it's every year from 3rd year to 10th. They were easy as fuck, and everybody passed it, though.
You have to pass an exam to go to 5th and 8th grade?
Yup. If you don't, you get held back until you do. And even if you pass it, if your grade's shit you may not be able to get into the school you want. But, like I said, that shit's easy as hell. You have to be mentally retarded to not pass, so it's less about passing and more about getting a good score.
Then again, even if you get a good one, you can get fucked, because the way it works is that they take your school grades into consideration as well. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I just looked it up and it turns out that as of 4 months ago this is no longer the case. It's now literally impossible to fail and they've changed the scoring. The old system took your literature average grade over the years, your average math grade and your exam grade times 4. We're graded on a scale from 2 to 6 (it was originally 1 to 6, but they quickly noticed a 1 is easy to turn into a 4 on a report card), so the maximum score is 36. Form what I recall, the same applied to the one after highschool, which you use to apply for a university. HOWEVER, quite a few universities have their own system, where if you take THEIR exam, which is way harder your score from the exam is multiplied by 5. So you can potentially get 42 points. The catch is that you have to pay to take their exam and it's REAAAAAALLY fucking hard. Most people don't bother, because chances are they'll get a higher score on the 36 scale than the 42 one. Personally, I pretty much had to take the uni exam, because my average grades were shit. I had a D in math and a C in literature, which would be a 3 and a 4. I got a 5 on my exam, which put me at 27/36, which was nowhere near enough. So, I worked my ass off, took the uni exam (which was math, the thing I had a D in), got a 5.7 and ended up with a score of 35.5. Which means people who didn't take the uni exam would literally have to score perfectly to do better than me. So I easily got into the university I wanted.
If this all sounds convoluted and strange to you, that's kind of the point. If you've got too many people with degrees it devalues the degree and makes it pointless, so universities tend to limit the number of people that graduate. In the US they do it by jacking up the prices. Over here they do it by making higher education a goddamn gauntlet of bullshit, where if you're not careful and attentive, you're fucked.
Gotcha. I live in a rural area so I'm not familiar with whether or not the US has a system like that for determining your next schools (since there's only 1 H.S. and 1 middle school in the entire county I lived in as a kid)
Yeah, that's something that's always puzzled me about the US. I live in a country of 4 million, less than some US cities, and yet we've got universities out the ass. Any city with more than 50 000 people has a university. Some have several.
From the Association of American Colleges and Universities: It says there are 2618 accredited four-year colleges and universities. Most operate privately or as part of state governments. That's 1 university for every 124,703 people. This does not include trade schools or community colleges (2-year degrees), or the fact that not everyone will attend a school beyond their public high school. The university that I attend has over 31,000 students, and is considered to be one of the bigger ones.
Well I mean there's only 3,000 people in my town. We have a Community College, but it's pretty shit.

Traditional curing with salt and a nice bit of heat does it for me, but the texture is literally worse than the inside of someone's rectum when raw.

history has shown putting it underground is a very bad idea (difficult to repair, difficult to shut off in case of leak, if it's encased in concrete you can almost forget about repairing it because it'll take a month just to get it prepared to switch out pipes. besides above ground it's high enough for animals to avoid it, plus the several hundred thousand gallons of flowing oil tends to act as a bit of a heat sync to pull head away from fires thus keeping the pipe safe enough from heat. the problem only comes when a cunt trying to save the environment decides it's safer to dump thousands of gallons of crude into the nearest river than leave the pipe operating without leaking.
Still, it'd be nice to add some sort of dipshit deterrent.
