    We are planning no foundation tier candidates.

    Have you looked at what aqa have released relating to Maths tier of entry last year. If all your candidates are getting 6 or above then higher tier is right. Aqa are expecting more foundation tier than previously.

    No I haven't looked into it. My worry with foundation tier is that in the past one needed about 90% for a C and that was almost impossiblke for our candidates but they all got Cs on higher tier where it required a lowish percentile score.

    It's a complete shot in the dark for the 4 - 6 candidates.

    So. The fact that the French writing paper was Free Time, Holidays, Jobs and School. Good because it's not the topics everyone was dreading? Or bad because pupils at schools where they learn answers off by heart will do better than pupils who go in ready to make up an answer in response to the question?

    No response so was it good for everyone?

    Pretty good. Speaking conv rote learning still beats spontaneous talking. Writing requires more ability to respond spontaneously unless question an obvious one. Some topics could be stinkers... (next year?)

    Interesting. Our (few) candidates did well on everything except higher listening in French.

    There does seem to be a general satisfaction with 2018 GCSE MFL results

    Nope! Our Speaking marker completely ignored / misapplied the mark scheme for Gen conversation. The re-marks were satisfying! HUGE leaps. (Higher).
