'Entry-Level NVQ 1' is the base level tier and stands for Islanders sharing a smooch.
'NVQ 2' was determined to be code for when couples have partaken in oral activity.

The babes all donned pink dressing gowns during their NVQ ceremony, marking that all the girls have gotten physical with their beaus.
