    the fifth year

    WHAT
    You use what about or what of when you introduce a new topic or a point which seems relevant to a previous remark.
    And what about when you were in the fifth year, did people give you careers advice on coming to college?...
    (Collins Cobuild dictionary)

    What is meant by "in the fifth year"? The fifth year of studying at school?

    Thanks.

    Re: the fifth year

    In the UK secondary school system, the fifth year is your final year at secondary school. It's the last year before you go to either Sixth Form College or Technical College.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It is now generally referred to as Year 11.

    Something I doubt I will ever get used to!
