    Hi there

    my Y13 are doing their term assessments tomorrow and will complete Paper 2. I will be marking it but my HOD hasn't given any indication of grade boundaries ( our school has the weirdest system which is like an internal scale of 1-9) so after looking on AQA, it seems all I can find is boundaries for anything but paper 2. I would like to be able to tell the students " your essay was so many points = such grade".
    it's my first year of teaching ALEVEL so any help would be appreciated :)

    There are no grade boundaries. When the actual exam has been done, the grades will be allocated depending on what % of students get what mark.
    You can do 3 things.
    1. Get together with other schools to see how your marks compare and try to draw up some kind of grade boundaries.
    2. Focus on the marking criteria and make sure you give very clear feedback based on that.
    3. Give them an old A Level paper to do (I know it's different skills and content) to get a general idea of what level they would have got on the old specification.

    yes I have been focusing on using the AO but even with boundaries from last year for Paper 2 it would help me narrow it down a bit. I have told them we won't get boundaries until next summer ( I should have mentioned that in my thread) but wondering if someone has grade references.
    I have planned some Paper 1 assessment this term as well as the one from their mock so I get data.
    as I am not getting any support from my HOD when it comes to Alevel I am looking for any solution to my questions ;)
