Edexcel Drama GCSE Marks 2011 - "The Wheel of Fortune"

Discussion in 'Drama and performing arts' started by chidler, Aug 26, 2011.

  1. If life is full of paradoxes, then I have a gem for you all here.
    Without question, our drama cohort for 2011 was the best we have ever had: talented, enthused and original. To that end, the unit 3 results were excellent, with many getting full marks. Imagine our confusion when we see pupils on results' day with, on a consistent basis, a grade 2 levels below their mediocre expectations. Pupils getting A* for English are getting B or C for drama.
    Our unit 1 and unit 2 moderator has, on average scythed 20% off the pupils' coursework marks. The man, woman (beast?) has made Cameronesque cuts beyond belief ir reason. A shameful, shameful day that has left pupils, staff and parents utterly demoralised.
    The paradox? The best year group has generated the worst results in the school's drama GCSE time.
    So where does that leave us and Edexcel? So long, farewell...
