Cards will be issued in September using the old grading system. When you get your card you may apply to be regraded using the new system if you wish. This must be done through your Club Secretary who will pass on the request to the Regional Secretary.
If you get a B2 card and hold less than 2000 local points you may apply to be regraded to N1 (provided it is less than 5 years since you took your first lesson).
If you get a B1 card and hold less than 1 National Point (5000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to B2.
If you get an A2 card and hold less than 2 National Points (10000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to B1.
If you get an A1 card and hold less than 5 National Points (25000 Local Points) you may apply to be regraded to A2.
If you get a Regional Master card and hold less than 40 National Points you may apply to be regraded to Area Master.
All these gradings are optional - if you don't apply they will not happen.

And just once today, please, a nice Grand Slam hand.
