anteater:"Next year we're all going to be wondering whether to gamble and put borderline students in for the H tier, as they seem to have targetted the F tier as a way of keeping Cs down. Another dilemma." Any pupil we entered with a mix of tiers got a C, that inludes those who got a C in Higher and D in foundation. However, few pupils entered for both foundation tiers got a C. Our problem is that as a non-selective school we have a number of pupils who would find the Higher tier paper very difficult - yet it seems that although they can access the foundation tier they will find it next to impossible to get a C due to the boundary setting at foundation tier. Plus, the way in which CA seems to be being graded makes it an uphill struggle to the C grade. A huge problem.
