Does anyone have a downloadable tickbox list of the maths needed to attain the old levels 4a,bc and 5c. We have moved outside the UK, where the old NC curriculum is still used. Thankyou.

This never existed, some schools may have made up sublevel tickboxes but that was just their own thing.

By which I mean there isn't anything that officially differentiates a 4c from a 4b. If you sat a SATs paper, then they'd roughly split the grade boundary in 3 so anyone who got say 90 got a 4b and anyone who got 91 got a 4a, but apart from that sublevels are meaningless.

Ah, OK thanks. Her school has a list of tick off points for each sublevel. She left one school at a 4b, the next school at a 5, now new school is claiming she is not even a 4c, until she has ticked off all these points. Although her homework seems harder than the new curriculum revision books.

Is this secondary, and is it definitely national curriculum levels? Since they were scrapped some schools are wheeling things out that look like levels but aren't so it's quite confusing!

Here are some level descriptors for the old levels:

It's primary, offshore, DD is in yr6. They follow the standard UK curriculum but haven't opted for the new curriculum and have switched to iGCSE. Thank you for the link it is helpful. The school has an in-depth checklist, an A4 sheet for each sublevel, but the kids don't get to fetch it home. DD is feeling very demoralised, as she has worked hard and now feels she is at the bottom, she says she often has to re-do work that she's done at her old school. Looking quickly at your link, the algebra she had for homework this week is certainly level 5.
