I need information in respect to my Year 12 certificate.
Boa Tarde,
I am an Australian married to a Brazilian and live and work here in Brazil. I am an English teacher here since 2008. I am studing here in Brazil. I have just started my 4th semester at the Universidade - Unifacs EAD here in Porto Seguro Bahia Brazil.
Up until this point my School certificate has been excepted but now the Uni is stating that I have to prove that my year 12 certificate; Victorian Certificate of Education is the same as "Ensino Médio" here in Brazil.
My certificate has been traduced and stamped by the Australian Embasy and then traduced with more details here in Brazil but they are still not content.
What do you recommend for me to do now?
Would you recommend that I send my documentation Year 12 Certificate to you guys in Rio ?. Maybe you guys could help me confirm that I have "Ensino Médio".
