Integrated Science comprises Science and Technology, Agriculture, Home Science, and Physical and Health Education. Meanwhile, Creative Arts and Social Studies encompass Social Studies, Art and Craft, Music, and Religious Education.

Grading is done on a scale of Performance Level 1 to 4 for all five subjects, with the highest number denoting exemplary performance. Performance Level 1, categorized as below expectation, is awarded when the learner attempts to demonstrate assessed knowledge, skills, and attitudes/values with assistance.

Performance Level 2, described as approaching expectation, is where the learner displays assessed attributes some of the time.

For Performance Level 3, meeting expectations, the grade six pupil can generally tackle given assessment tasks. Performance Level 4, the highest commendation, is described as exceeding expectations, with the learner consistently and accurately displaying assessed attributes.
