my son, yr 9 has just brought home his latest progress report. His maths level has been given as 4a. This is now about 2/3 levels lower than the rest of his subjects. I am always confused as to how the maths dept works out levels as they give different sub levels for each paper and not one over all e.g. the papers that the progress level was based on were 2009 level 3-5 papers. In paper 1 he got 24 (and marked level 4c) paper 2 he got 32 (marked level 4a). They have given him a level 4a on his progress report. Adam Creen once kindly explained how the levels work out but are the school wrong in marking as they are?
