I was wondering how everyone else's results were for GCSE Textiles this year? I am confident in my marking abilities and have been spot on for the last 4 years. I completely understand the new spec criteria and have been on training. Yet, the moderator marked all my coursework marks by 12-14 marks! For example, one of my students had a finished dress which was very sloppy and she needed a lot of help but it was put together as well as a folder with some decent work in it. She was definitely G coursework but the moderator marked her down to a U! But she had something! Luckily she just scraped a G with her coursework and exam marks combined! Other students were also solid Ds but went to E, or As down to B, etc. I expected the exam to bomb as usual (which is why next year students are completing Art & Design: Textiles since it has a practical exam instead of written) but am gobsmacked by the coursework! Has anyone else had this issue?
