BGE

Most pupils in S1 and S2 will be progressing through the bench marks of level 3, moving on to encounter level 4 benchmarks in S3. However, all pupils do progress at different rates. The final level achieved at the end of the BGE (S3) will help inform the pathway into National qualifications, at National 3, 4 or 5 level.  Please click on the link below which will highlight all the content and skills that need to be covered before a level can be achieved. This helps to explain why it can take quite a considerable amount of time before a level is achieved.
