Bell Day as it's called in Mongolia, is actually graduation! The differences don't end with the name either. Here it's held weeks before the school year finishes, and includes graduation from 5th, 9th and 11th grades.

Grades 7 -9 are middle or secondary school, so the 9th grade graduation promotes a student to high school. High school currently consists of grades 10 and 11. Certain homerooms of students are earmarked for the change and will have the added years of education.
