AQA GCSE Eng Lang exam - mark or grade?

    We entered our students for the AQA GCSE English Language exam in the summer but didn't submit their controlled assessments.
    They got a numerical mark (raw score and UMS) and a grade for this Unit 1 paper. The grade boundaries for each unit are available on the AQA website, so can easily be converted, anyway.
    I hope this helps.

    Where are the grade boundaries on the AQA website? I can't find them.

    UMS grade boundaries are here:

    Scroll down and follow links to series / level of qualification. eg. the GCSE for Summer 2011 is here:

    Hope this helps.
     
  4. My daughter sat this in June of year 10. She got a numerical mark (something like 42) and a UMS mark (something like 68) and a grade for the unit in little letters, like they do for modules. (that was a 'd')
    We looked up the AQA website to see how close she was to a 'c' and they had a useful system on there where you logged the score and it gave a graph and grade thresholds.
