Our results were better, but there was a clear pattern. A lot less U's this time - barely any. Our Triple students had 43 A*s from 2 sets and many had full marks. The Core students did better but there was mass underachievement. The exam favoured the bright students but the less able students who worked hard were still not getting the marks. I'll be looking to change for the Additional students back to OCR and leave EDEXCEL well alone. Yes the results were better, but they were still not in line with other exam boards and students were still well off their targets, despite all the extra work done.
