So I am filling out a CV and answering about my education, when it comes up 'year obtained' I have never come across this on a CV before and if I have it hasn't been worded this way. Could someone help me? I am confused about whether it asking me the year I started or left, Thank you.

"Year obtained" refers to the year that you received your degree or certification, when you completed your course of education. If you never completed the course, I suppose you could put your last year, but be careful that you don't misrepresent yourself as having a qualification that you didn't complete.
