Thailand has a 6-3-3 formal education structure that has been in place since 2008. 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. Beginning in 2004, all of primary and secondary school as well as two years of pre-primary school were included in basic education. In principle, the fourteen years of basic education are free and compulsory. The academic year is broken down into two semesters and lasts approximately 40 weeks (UNESCO IBE, World Data on Education. 7th Edition, 2010-2011. Revised 4/2011).
Among other data sources, unique EPDC data collections for Thailand include household survey data from SES (2002) and indicators derived from UIS data.
