Understanding Course Codes

The first five characters of the course code indicate the subject, grade level, and course type. They are based on the Common Course Codes used in all secondary schools in Ontario.

How to Decipher a Course Code (example: ENG2D1)

Subject Grade Course Type Indicator
ENG 2 D 1
The first three characters of the course code (ENG in this example) refers to the name of the course. ENG2D1 is English. The fourth character (2 in this example) refers to the grade of the course.

1 = grade 9
2 = grade 10
3 = grade 11
4 = grade 12

EX. ENG2D1 is a grade 10 course.

The fifth character (D in this example) refers to the type of course.

P = applied
D = academic
