School calendar and final exams. Read the whole description before answering Q's

There are questions which will evaluate whether people would prefer starting the school year earlier to have finals before winter break, break length, whether schools should go by year or semesters, by which semesters would have the course content broken into two therefore failing the course would require retaking it for one semester instead of one whole year and by which they would not have to wait for one year, and by which age difference in the students would be maximum 6 months instead of 12 months for those who aren't held up, etc. I prefer semester system instead of year, trimester, and quarter so unfortunately, questions will only be based on semesters and years to avoid it from getting too long. They are also based on USA standard of school by 180 days total in one whole year. Those of you who live in the southern hemisphere, to avoid confusion with these questions, I'm letting you know that the northern hemisphere has seasons opposite from the southern hemisphere, therefore winter from December to February and summer from June to August. That's why on many movies by which Christmas takes places in, there is snow during Christmas, and that's why you hear the white Christmas thing, and that's why pictures of Santa Claus shows him dressing up warmly. When you answer the questions, be sure you appropriately show by you balanced preference giving school 180 school days, like don't put 2 weeks for winter break and 0 weeks for summer break, or 14 week winter break and 12 week summer break. Make sure your number of weeks of breaks in preference like fall, winter, spring, and summer break all adds up to 14 weeks, which allows 180 school days to exist in a school calendar. Those questions are to see what people prefer. I know most of us prefer shorter, some longer school year. This is based on what our preferences are based on a 180 day, 38 week school year calendar based on USA seasons and holidays.
How do you prefer the school year to run by? (Semester, trimester, quarter form will not make subjects go faster, but it will be broken into the many amount of terms there are per year. So compared to year, for example, in semester system, students would change classrooms and teachers every semester but subjects will be broken into 2 parts. Grades, or years, will be intead labeled by first half of ___ and second half of ___. For trimester, they will instead be broken down by a factor of 3, and so on.)
