    Hi all

    Does anyone have any idea what the grade boundaries are likely to be for the AS papers? I am regularly marking case studies which are out of 25 (one 9 mark and one 16 mark question) and would like to be clear on how many marks I should be expecting an A/B/C/D grade student to be getting out of 25. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Look in the back of any examiner's report for each exam. You'll see the raw and UMS marks there for past exams.

    If you are talking about using past papers, then the grade boundaries per year/per subject are very clear. If, however, you are using a new specification for new examinations, then contact the exam board for their preliminary breakdown.

    (I teach Classics - when I give past papers, I look at the grade boundaries for the specific paper as published by the exam board I use (OCR) per year and per paper - both for GCSE and AS/A-level. HOWEVER, if you are working to a new specification (due to the various changes) you need to contact the exam board to get a rough idea but until the new specification is examined, marked and reported upon, you can only use common sense to determine a letter grade).

    With the new AQA it is not really clear. Contact Guildford.
