Standard Grade Physical Education

Standard Grades are no longer available and have been replaced by the new National Qualifications.

Some Standard Grade documents are still available for information, including past papers and arrangements documents. To support teachers/lecturers through the transition from Standard Grade to National 3, National 4 and National 5 Courses, we have also produced Course comparison documents for each subject. These highlight useful areas or topics of study in Standard Grade materials that might be useful for the new Courses.
