To earn the ADEK Transcript, students must meet all of the graduation requirements of Alberta Education and earn an Alberta Diploma. It is important that students become aware of their course options when they commence Grade 10, so that they are able to take all of their required courses for acceptance into the universities of their choice.   Grade 10 In Grade 10, there is only one  course option and it concerns Science. All students are encouraged to take Science 10, especially those that wish to go on to Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics. If a student is staying in the UAE and does not wish to take Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics, they have the option of taking Science 14. As this does limit some choices, this decision should be made with the student, parents, and school administration. Options include: Biology 20 Chemistry 20 Physics 20 Science 14 It is essential that students pass all of the required courses so that they can continue to Grade 11. If students wish to take higher level courses in Grade 11 they should ensure an average of at least 70% in the following courses: Mathematics 10 Science 10 English Language Arts 10 Social Studies 10 Grade 11 In Grade 11, courses are titled ‘20’ to indicate that they are a Grade 11 course. Some courses are further differentiated: 20-1 indicates the highest level course, containing challenging coursework 20-2 indicates a course with somewhat less challenging coursework For Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Mathematics, students are given the 20-2 coursework. If a teacher deems a student is advanced and capable of extra work, they can ask the student to take the 20-1 coursework. For the Sciences, students can take Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics. Generally speaking, students find Chemistry and Physics to be challenging courses that require revision outside of class. Alternatively, students can take Science 24, which is less challenging.
