To graduate with a High School Diploma, all students leaving a Government high school must attain one of four academic levels (equivalent of a grade scale).


In addition, during their last three years (Years 10-12) they must have at least a 90% or more attendance record, along with less than 15 days of suspension. According to education officials, the aim in standardising the graduation criteria is to recognise and inspire excellence in achievement, and to make clear to both students and future employers what academic level has been attained at high school. It also ensures everyone in the community understands how qualifications are ranked, and how they then match up to skills and knowledge levels.

Level 2 Diploma With High Honours:

> At least 9 subjects passed at Level 2 or higher, at grades I-II/
A*-B or the equivalent standard (grades I or II for CXC, CSEC,
A*, A or B for GCSE/IGCSE; Level 2 BTEC qualifications with
distinction; or the equivalent standard for other externally
awarded qualifications)
> must include English and Mathematics

 

Level 2 Diploma With Honours:

> At least 7 subjects passed at Level 2 or higher (i.e. grades I –
III for CXC, CSEC; A*-C for GCSE/IGCSE; Level 2 BTEC;
orthe equivalent standard for other externally awarded
qualifications)
> must include English and Mathematics

 

Level 2 Diploma:
> At least 5 subjects passed at Level 2 or higher (i.e. grades
I – III for CXC, CSEC; A*-C for GCSE/IGCSE; Level 2 BTEC;
or the equivalent standard for other externally
awarded qualifications)
> must include English and Mathematics.

 

Level 1 Diploma:
> At least 5 subjects passed at Level 1 or higher (e.g. grades
IV-VI for CXC, CSEC, D-G for GCSE/CXC, Level 1 BTEC; or
the equivalent standard for other externally awarded
qualifications)
> must include English or Literacy Functional Skills, and
Mathematics, Numeracy or Mathematics Functional Skills.


For those who go on to Level 3 (International Baccalaureate or Advanced Placement diplomas, A Levels or an Associates degree at UCCI) after leaving high school, the passing of this level indicates suitability for pursuing tertiary education.
