    Examiner officer in our school has asked us as teachers to fill in and record for each student doing food what they will get A-U for coursework and also in another column A-U what they will get in the examination. We have tried to expalin that we do not yet know boundaries for what makes a C,B etc
    She wants it to be done for the 5th May. Does anyone have any ideas.
    thanks jane

    We have to do the same, we do OCR but you can work it out from the specification.

    Grade thresholds are either printed in the Chief Examiner's Report for J302, or at the end of the mark scheme for the written exam papers.
    The cut off points for January 2011 can be found here:

    I produced this table to give my pupils an idea of how hard they have to work to achieve the grade they want.
    A521 /30 A522 /20 A523 /30 A524 /20 Total /100
    A* 25.5 18 27 18 88.5%
    A 22.5 16 24 16 78.5%
    B 19.5 14 21 14 68.5%
    C 16.5 12 18 12 58.5%
    D 13.5 10 15 10 48.5%
    E 10.5 8 12 8 38.5%
    F 8 6 9 6 29%
    G 5.5 4 6 4 19.5
  4. Don't use the UMS score marks in the specification, they are for after the grades have been awarded.

    Just look at the work, think about last year, did work of this quality get an A grade?
    Just remember we don't always get it right and that is what the moderation process is all about.
