S3 Maths

In S3 pupils are 'set' into ability sections for Maths.

Those decisions are made on the basis of a pupil’s CfE grades achieved in S2.

The department follows a policy of continual assessment which may
result in pupils changing class according to performance.

Pupils follow a CfE 3rd level or 4th level course in S3.
