    Help! Is there anyone familiar with the assessment of the coursework projects for this exam? I have to mark the projects of a member of staff taken seriously ill. I have down loaded the mark scheme/ specification but cannot find exemplar material to help with grade descriptors. I am Food trained but it is a while since I marked GCSE projects.
    Can anyone help or point me in the right direction please? I've been through all the projects and pencilled in a mark but have nothing to compare with... thankfully I have the teacher marks for practical and records of practical skills. I just want to be sure I'm on the right wave-length, so to speak!! Do I need to create a table for the grades I award and does anyone have the grading equivalent to marks awarded?

    Ooops, the exam board is AQA, sorry and than you for a prompt reply. Always in a rush, when I'm over the stress of this I will have a look at OCR... many thanks!

    Yes, thanks pineapplebun, I thought of that, we are already registered. The member of staff who is ill actually went to the exam board meeting but I can't find the resources. She'll probably have them in her room locked away or maybe even at home. I'll go have another search and if I can't find them I'll ring the 'board. I really wanted to look at an exemplar project to see how it was set out, I have last year's but its a different specification.
    To all intents... it is a good course and we have a lot of student take-up, our numbers are always good.
