Most public schools in Hungary have classes in the morning. There are no afternoon leisure activities offered for students. As the relationship between students tends to be very close, they usually spend most of their afternoons together.
The Hungarian grades:
- 5 (jeles) "excellent"
- 4 (jo) "good"
- 3 (közepes) "satisfactory", literally "mediocre"
- 2 (elégséges) "adequate"
- 1 (elégtelen) "unsatisfactory"
