Tiers of entry / possible grades

Discussion in 'English' started by mrharris34, Dec 2, 2011.

  1. Quick query - if we enter a student for an F tier single English AQA January exam, they can only get a C in that paper, right? But then if they go on to do really well in CAs and S and L, getting Bs, can their overall grade be a B, even though they did an F exam?
    Anyone know?

    They won't 'get a c' in the paper, just a numerical mark. It is possible for pupils to sit the AQA F tier exam and get a B overall but I'm not sure about other boards. A grade won't be assigned until all units have been submitted though, so you'll have to guesstimate likely outcomes based on exam results using last year's data. Enjoy that!
  3. If you are referring to the AQA Unit 1 exam then pupils will get a numerical mark and a clear grade. If they get a 'C' in the Unit 1 exam at Foundation tier (the highest they can get on this paper) then they can still get a B overall by 'pulling up' the grade using their CA and Speaking and Listening assessments.
