New GCSE Art & Design grade boundaries?

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by huskyafrica, Jan 5, 2011.

  1. I need help guessing what the grade boundaries could be (A*- U) ... I know what a C or A looks like but not what the actual new mark is.
     
  2. Replying to myself...GCSE AQA board ...
     
  3. Hi - look on their website for the uniform mark scale - there it says.... A*90% A 80% B 70% C60% etc. i have taken that as meaning to get a C you have to get 44/80 - hope i'm right!!
     
  4. Isn't 48 60% of 80 though?

    Do NOT use the uniform mark scales to ty to predict grade boundaries which haven't been set yet. UMS are for standardising marks year by year and across subjects, They bear NO relation to grade boundaries. You would have been told this in the standardisation meetings. If you over mark, you will end up beign marked down massively.
