I have just had my son's first school report with the attainment levels all expressed as National Curriculum levels. I understand the core subject levels but for non-core subjects the levels are all over the place - some high, some low?? He has 2b for languages he has just started which I understand but a 4b for Geography and then a 3c for history. Should they be 5s? Does this mean he has done badly at history? I have googled for about an hour to glean some info but have given up. The school did not provide much guidance simply saying a 5a in Science is not the same as a 5a in Geography but no explanantion!!
Can anyone shed any light on this for me please?
