Please note that the Old syllabus subjects only can combine with N3 subjects. The Old syllabus was written on or before 2007. Also ABET centers commonly known as ‘Knight School’ also used to offer the Old syllabus till 2014.

The simple differentiator for someone who is confused whether they did Old syllabus or not is to check the grading on your statement. If the subjects are rated using symbols such as ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ etc. then you wrote the Old syllabus. However if the rating you are having is ‘Level 1’, ‘Level 2’, till ‘Level 7’ then you cannot combine with N3 subjects.
