Exchange students, smarter?

Home More advice Education & School

So, at lunch today me and my friends were talking to two foreign exchange students. We asked them what grade they were in America, and they said 12th, and then we asked what grade they were in Germany and they said tenth. They are taking higher classes than we are. But I think younger than us.. In there country they take the classes we take in ninth grade. Why is that? I know it doesn't necessarily make them smarter than us, but it kind of seems like it..
