The correct answer involves A-levels - not something your American customers will generally be familiar with. Indeed, I had to look it up. There is by the way no general American equivalent. There are the rare states that offer a high school diploma with extra certification contingent upon an examination.

Bonjour Max,

Thank you for your feedback! Indeed, there isn't an equivalent of the French 'bac' in the US. A note is included in the lesson so as to explain the equivalence in the British system though. Your feedback will be passed on to the language team. 

Merci de votre contribution et bonne journée !

There are schools in the US that offer International Bacculaureate (IB). They tend to be elite private schools so the average American isn't familar with them.

AB classes/credits are also similar to A-levels. AB classes are voluntary, you can go to uni without taking them and you don't get a specific diploma or certificate. However, like AB classes, you're given advanced credit at US universities for A-levels.
