Overall English Level for Key Stage 2 National Curriculum Tests 2012 - A question

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Tiggermet, Mar 2, 2012.

  1. I think the overall pass mark is 53 (for Level 4 english). It's a bit worrying because that's the highest it's ever been. I hope I'm wrong.

    That was the thresholds examples they released based on last years reading. That score is a bit misleading as it is going by the set 30, 40, 50 points for writing TA.
    For example - you give little Billy a level 4 on his writing, he gets 40 points. He would then only need 13 points on the reading to get overall 4. Good for the ones who are just 4c, not so much for the 4a writers. They could possibly be really cvlose to being a L5 writer, but not quite there. To get an overall L5 they would need about 39/40 on the reading paper.
  3. Last year's threshold for English was 41 for Level 4, wasn't it?
