Overview

Standard Grades


Quick Reference

Scotland's educational qualifications for students aged around 14–16 years. Standard Grade courses are taken over the third and fourth years of a student's secondary schooling. Students will typically study seven to nine subjects at Standard Grade. The Standard Grade replaced the Scottish Ordinary Grade in the early 1990s. It is broadly equivalent to the General Certificate of Secondary Education qualification taken in other parts of the UK.
