Training on many skills for cognitive development is provided to children in this age group before they commence compulsory education at primary and secondary schools.

The maximum number of students spend six years in primary school, and some of them follow the five-year cycle of primary school. Primary education is for children from the age of six. This stage of education is followed by three to four years of junior secondary education.
