S3 - BGE

S3 Progress Assessment October 2017

S3 pupils are due to sit a Progress Assessment this October. The assessment will cover topics from Block 7 from our S3 course outline and will be assessing understanding at Levels 3/4 and 4+. Please see information about the topics being assessed below:

 Block 7 topics

Following analysis of this assessment and departmental discussions, there maybe changes to classes so we can broadly set pupils into groups that will suit their pace of learning. These changes will NOT determine the SQA qualification that pupils will be presented for in S4. This will be considered later in S3 and more information will be given nearer the time.
