General Certificate of Secondary Education. It's the standard school leaving test people in the UK take at 16.

But the point of it is not to prepare people for life outside school; it's more to set you up academically for the optional two year 'Advanced Level' (A-Level) course - of which there are two years. Advanced Subsidiary (A/S) and Advanced 2 (A2). Universities only really accept A2 and the A/S is there now for people to be able to gain a qualification after a single year. However - the A/S in itself doesn't really count for anything either.
