  1. Thank you for replying, my daughter said she got a 6a but I thought she must be fibbing as she only got 57 percent on her test. It was an internal test but I imagine the boundaries are much the same as those mentioned (as a percentage). I think we'll be having words!
     
  2. Also another point OP doesn't say it is a SATs paper, maybe it's an internal test and the boundaries have been set based on the amount of L5, L6, L7 Questions. This is how it should be, and not a simple 50% always equals this because SATs do it that way.

    If it was a SATs paper then she wouldn't get a 6a but just a 6 as SATs deal in whole levels! Sounds like this was a test on just a small part of the full syllabus in which case the test could be unique to the school.
     
  4. Thanks for all the replies. It was a level 5-7 test, but an internal one. Sounds like I'd better send a quick note to her teacher.
