Norwegian term or phrase: preceteris
...han fikk preceteris til artium. Bruker vi dette uttrykket i det hele tatt lenger, og i så fall, hva skal jeg oversette det med? Artium er en annen ting - A-levels in UK eller har noen et bedre forslag?

Explanation:
Litt avhengig av hvilket marked du henvender deg til. Laudabilis prae ceteris var den høyeste utmerkelsen man kunne få -
http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preseterist, noe tilsvarende summa/magna cum laude - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_honors. Hvorfor ikke opprettholde den norske evt. latinske betegnelsen og sette (highest academic distinction) i parentes?
