  2. Hi Ryan
    What are the motives behind the C-B progressions?

    I was surprised to find out last year that some psychology degree courses are now specifying a grade B at gcse rather than the university requirements of C in Maths. I think this is due to the level of Mathematics required to be successful with the data parts of the course.

    That makes sense, in the Maths department we sometimes get some coursework queries from A Level Psychology students - Chi squared or Mann Whiney tests.

    I think Loughborough is an increasingle popular place - they are good at the work placements. I suspect the unis good at this will do well. Surrey & Aston also excellent.
     
  7. Hi,
    We are aiming to progress as many of our C's to B's for a few reasons, namely to help those that are capable of it but havent yet achieved reach a B, and secondly to enhance the number of students making 3 or more levels progress from KS2
