Any of you out there? I was just wondering if you had an opinion on the thresholds for the Higher exam? From what we can work out, the SQA are keeping the percentage of pupils passing at around 72%, hence the 55% for a grade C. However, something like 78% of those who sit Physics and Chemistry passed, and in one of these subjects I'm pretty sure it was 43% for a grade C. To us, it's a shocking state of affairs - we have 7 pupils who are sitting between 50 and 55% and walked away with a D. The SQA's system of having a certain proportion of each sitting passing an exam doesn't take account of whether a year group are particularly good or bad. The other thing to think about is whether the SQA are admitting that the exam was 'too easy'. How many of us have had appeals turned down for something similar with prelims? Anyway, rant over. Happy Friday everyone!
