what is the british equivalent of high school? anyone knows? can i say that "i've been living on my own during my last two years in high school" in my pt?
also is it "in high school" or "of high school"?

i'm at 3090 words at the moment. w00t. and i'm revising my last paragraph about work and life experiences not connected to school that would show i'm pretty ready to leave for uni.

thanks guys. i'm going to post this piece of shit of a pt once i'm done tonight, so you can give me your input. keep in mind that i have absolutely no academic knowledge of the subjects i'd like to study in uni so i had to make up a bunch of shite just to impress the application guys. it's also going to be very cheesy because from what i've seen, that's how pt ares anyway.

i have notes that say -
paragraphs
1 - intro to the subject i'm insterested in and why (lol it's not really like this but i can't read my own calligraphy)
2 - what i've done related to my subjects that isnt on the ucas form
3, 4 - work experience adn things i've done in school
5 - my interests outside of school (& responsibilities)
6 - my goal of going to university and closing comment.

my own pt right now is:
1 - intro to why i like this subject and how did i learn what i know (it's hard to explain i've only been reading stuff off the internet!)
2 - stuff i've read and seen about it outside schoool
3 - says i've been studying maths for 6 yrs, physics for 2, and astronomy for just 1 cause my school is focused on humanities. says i'm involved with the astrophiles association
4 - work experience and responsibilities

the first and second paragraphs are pretty long though. but i feel like i have to explain myself A LOT. so i'm going to make the last one better now and see if i can manage to insert a quick closing comment there.

i need to ask couple of questions even google can't answer.

a) is there a difference between 'lucky' and 'fortunate'? if so, what is it?
b) is there a difference between 'pillow' and 'cushion'? and what is a 'cushion pillow'??
c) why do americans call autumn 'fall'? i mean i can see why, but why would someone change the name of a season in the first place?
d) is it 'americans' or 'american people'? is there a difference? which one is better? does anyone care?

also, looking for the difference between 'elevator' and 'lift' (i mean, i know they are the same thing, i just wanted to know which one was british and which was american), i came across a long list of words that are different in british english and american english.
well, i once wrote 'mum' somewhere, meaning to shorten 'mother', and someone apparently got very confused and they went all "WUT'S A MUM LOL IS IT A MUMMY OR SOMETHING'. and i go "uh... i meant mother." "LOL THATS MOM THEN" "oh... okay, sorry for not being clear". so ever since i have been spelling 'mum' 'mom'. BUT GUESS WHAT. i found it in the list, and mum is the british spelling, which means that i didn't just make it up for no reason, but IT DOES EXIST! so i'm happy. i will probably return to spelling it with an u now, just because.
because i want to impress my english teacher by using a lot of british english words because that's what they teach us in school and so i will look very... studious. and that's also why i'm reading shakespeare at the moment but that's a whole different story.

so yes. please teach me english. thank you!
