When I awarded the practical marks examiner said that we were in tolerance and that no marks would change. Most students achieved a potential 40% plus out of 60% (80/120 marks). I was counting on achieving 80% A*-C and have been told by my line manager that we only got 45%. I noticed on the website that the boundaries had gone up slightly but what a drop from my expectation. Was the written exam marked too low? I can not access these marks at the moment as this is not availiable online until tomorrow, but I feel that I've let the kids down and there is such a descrpencey with my expectation. I feel so devastated. I thought AQA was the way to go and I changed from Edexcel and achieved 86% last year. Please any help or info.
