Angola has a 6-3-3 formal education structure that has been in place since 2004. Primary school has an official entry age of six and a duration of six grades. Secondary school is divided into two cycles: lower secondary consists of grades 7 - 9, and upper secondary consists of grades 10 - 12. In principle, primary school is free and compulsory. Students sit for the exams at the end of grade 6, 9, and 12. (UNESCO IBE, World Data on Education. Revised 9/2010).
Prior to 2004, primary education lasted four years, and duration of lower and upper secondary cycles was four and three years, respectively. UIS data reflect this change in the structure of the education system beginning in 2007
Among other data sources, unique EPDC data collections for Angola include household survey data from MICS (2000), and indicators derived from UIS data.
