We are new to Irish grade system in a secondary school.
I received my son;s End of Year Report and was shocked...
1. Are the grades based only on tests at the last week of the first semester or they are from 1 september - 22 december including homework and current tests during that period?
2. Who is deciding what level the pupil should go and based on what?
3. Mark- is it % and how much is A? B? C? D? F?
4. Grade, how many grades are here and what are they?
5. Effort, how is it possible to have a grade D and effort 4 or a grade A and effort 3?

Thank you very much
