Advanced level , Senior level on certificate

I have a question about the differences between: Advanced level , Senior level shown on a English level certificate

e.g. You have a Senior level of English
You have an Advanced level of English

any differences? does the word Senior make sense?

I would be grateful if any native speakers of English could explain them.

    You would have to know the rating system of the school to know any differences. In isolation, they could be the same or quite different.

    Or are these level names that you are making up yourself? If so, are there other levels?

    I have never heard or seen senior being used to describe a level of language proficiency. Advanced is common but is meaningless unless explained in reference to something else. In Europe the CEF (Common European Framework) is generally used these days. C1 is equivalent to advanced.
