Does anyone know why it is so much more difficult to achieve level 5 in maths than english. The overall thresholds for english are usually around the 69 area but for maths are around 10 marks more. We are constantly being asked why our level 3's at KS 1 can covert to 5's in english but not maths... I think the 10 extra marks needed could be part of the problem! Surely if they are all out of 100 the level 5 threshold should be similar.
