Hi, i'm an international student who is applying to US universities as undergraduate this year. My country's education system is different from US education system. I would like to explain it in the additional information. Is the explanation below appropriate?

"Malaysia's education from primary school to secondary school is 11 years. America's education from primary school to secondary school is 12 years. I understand that in order to be enrolled in most of the prestige universities in US requires 12 years of education. For me to enter to the prestige universities, I am currently studying American Degree Transfer Program in INTI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY COLLEGE which enables me to have 12 years of education."

Please let me know if there is any mistakes or i need to add more information about my country's education system.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think it necessary to mention "America's education from primary school to secondary school is 12 years", is it?

Ok, thanks. How about the sentence "For me to enter to the .... "? Do you think that it's too strong?

I think for the phrase "For me to enter to the prestige universities", you can simply change to "Therefore/Thus".

Btw, although "secondary school" is synonymous with "high school", "high school" seems to be the more commonly used word. So you might want to consider changing to that instead. Just my own opinions, so it's really up to you.

"Malaysia's education from primary school to secondary school consists only of eleven years. I understand that in order to be enrolled in most of the prestige universities in US requires twelve years of education. In order to earn my place within your prestigious university, I am currently studying American Degree Transfer Program in INTI INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY COLLEGE which enables me to have 12 years of education."

Yes, give one or two more sentences to tell what you are gaining from this program.

Good luck!!!!!
