According to wholevehicles, the Maldives is an archipelago of over 1,000 islands in the Indian Ocean located south-west of Sri Lanka and India. It is the smallest Asian country with a total area of 298 square kilometers, making it slightly smaller than Washington DC in the United States. The Maldives has two distinct regions: North and South Maldives. North Maldives consists of two atolls: Haa Alifu and Haa Dhaalu, while South Maldives consists of three atolls: Shaviyani, Noonu, and Raa. All the islands are low-lying coral atolls surrounded by lagoons and fringing reefs. The education system in the Maldives follows a 6-3-3-4 system similar to that used in many other countries around the world. Primary school lasts for six years followed by three years each at secondary school and pre-university level respectively before students can pursue higher education at university or college level. Education is free up until Form 6 (the last year of pre-university) after which fees must be paid for any further studies. There are also vocational training centers available for students who wish to pursue a career in technical or manual labor. The government has implemented various initiatives over the past few years aimed at improving access to quality education for all citizens, including free textbooks and school uniforms for primary school students as well as providing scholarships for those pursuing higher education.
