    Changing the metric system would also cost billions of dollars. Changing the numerical quantity of literally everything in our daily lives. Especially when law is involved

    For Jimmy and anybody else who wondered, Lower and Upper six are the entry qualifications for University. If you've watched or read Harry Potter, its the NEWTS and comes after OWLS.

    In Britain both are used and to convert to and from metric is taught in schools, a persons height and weight is measured in feet, inches and stones and pounds. Speed is measured in mph, as is distance, however, for smaller lengths we use metres and cms. Petrol is purchased in litres but consumption is measured in gallons. Milk is purchased usually in pints but for example mineral water is in litre/ml bottles. Fruit and veg usually in kilos. When she says lower sixth, she means an institution called sixth form college, where you study a course called A-Levels, aged 16-18. Upper sixth is the last of the two year course before heading to university. Universities are seldom referred to as colleges in the UK.

    Imperial system isn't that bad. Yeah it's old but still doing fine with it. Besides, don't we use some things from the metric system?
