Scholarship merit badge - tracking Req. 1 but “no grades”

Looking for some advice on Scholarship MB requirement 1.

I’m a counselor for the Badge and running an upcoming session for a virtual MBU.

Two of the Scouts planning to attend are homeschooled and as part of their curriculum they do not receive letter or percentage grades.

Given that, there’s no way of verifying a B or higher average (option 1)…

So for Req. 1, option 2: what are some ways I can require verification that these Scouts have improved their “grades” over the previous term (when there technically are no grades).

I have some ideas but wanted to hear from others who might have had a similar experience as a Scholarship counselor.
