I've been looking at this this morning and trying to apply the marking criteria to a performance by my Y10 class. If I've done the maths correctly, someone who is at the bottom of the 'excellent' band is coming out at a C and someone at the bottom of the good band is coming out as an E! Tell me my maths is at fault please! I've given them a mark out of 20 for each of the 3 assessment criteria then totalled it to a mark of 60. I've then used the guidelines on pg 45 of the online specification to grade them. The uniform mark is out of 120 so I've doubled the mark out of 60 to get a mark out of 120. With me so far? So a kid who's just in the excellent bracket getting 13+13+13 = 36/60. Which, to calculate the uniform mark, is 72/120. Edexcel reckon this is just a C. But they are excellent??!! I'm hoping that the end of year madness has set in and I'm doing this all wrong - otherwise I am quite concerned about my marks for next year! Help!
