  1. Wow, it requires a much lower percentage to get a C grade at foundation than I had been told. That could explain why all my students are getting C grades as I'm aiming for 85% plus for them!
    I'd still like to see national figures for what percentage of the C grades come from which exam.

    Hi icegirl,
    I can almost provide what you are asking for now! Today Edexcel emailed round figures that show, for the summer sitting, the percentage of pupils who gained each grade on each of their <u>modular</u> papers [sorry - not linear and not total GCSE grades and not full national figures, but closer than we've managed to get so far on this thread!]
    The tables won't paste nicely into this forum, so I'll just tell you the salient info about the final modular exam (worth 50% of the total grade).
    For the Foundation tier, 15% of those who sat the exam gained a C grade (on those papers).
    For the Higher tier, 46.2% got a B grade or better, 34.3% got a C grade and 19.5% got a D or lower.
