It’s All About Progression
п‚— Building on prior knowledge and
skills gained is vital to pupil
progression.
--- AND SO --п‚— Narrowing of subjects from 8 in S3 to 7 in S4
to 5 in S5.
 Picking �new’ subjects in S5 is discouraged, although in
some cases, a related subject may be acceptable.
--- BUT --п‚— Constraints of exam results, career aspirations, class
sizes, class viability may have an impact on this.
Working Together to Inspire Learning and Shape the Future
Progression and your child
At the end of S4, your son/daughter
will have 7 qualifications at Nat 3, Nat 4
or Nat 5.
--Ideally, they should choose 5 of those
subjects to progress in S5.

S4 Results Really Matter
 Will a pupil scraping a �C’ pass at
Nat 5 in S4 find Higher in S5 too
challenging?
 I don’t know!
п‚— Pupils in that position will be
advised on their most appropriate
S5 course by subject specialists.
п‚— S4 exam results will really matter!
