    Can anyone tell me what grade boundaries they are using for their mocks in November for all four skills, higher and foundation in French and Spanish. We use AQA and we are going to do the mock specimen papers but how can we judge what grade their outcomes equate to?

    We all need to post how many pupils get what marks on the spec paper. Then we can see what boundaries to set for top 5%, 10% etc.

    I think they will be low. Higher maths was 17% for a 4 this summer. When the new GCSE came out in 2009, the pass mark for a C for the speaking was 20%. I think it will get higher as we get further into this after the next few years

    It's all down to guestimates. I'm not expecting massively high percentages for the majority of my kids. Vocab is the major issue for me. Seem to be looking at a maximum of 65 - 70% for my best kids on higher. BTW though doing AQA have downloaded all Edexcel specimens for extra practice. Not exactly the same but better than nothing.
