AQA Science A - Grade Boundaries

Discussion in 'Science' started by Matrixx, Jan 11, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I would like to know if there is a way to workout the over all grade in the Spec:4461
    For e.g. The pupils have done 1a and 1b modules in the 3 scienes all the results will be out tomorrow. From those results can I predict a grade?

    You will have a mark out of 300 for the modules. To get an overall level you will need to work out what their best ISA mark is and convert it to a UMS value and add it to the module scores to get a mark out of 400 (like the actual GCSE will be)

    The grade boundaries out of 400 are 40 marks apart e.g. 360 = A*, 320 = A. If you do not have sufficient ISA data then for the marks out of 300, the grade boundaries are 30 marks apart working down from 270 for an A*
