Appeals regarding Awarded Grades

Centre-Assessed Grades

Teachers, Subject Team Leaders and Curriculum Managers considered information about each student to determine a Centre-Assessed Grade to share with Awarding Bodies.  Examples of evidence used to determine Centre-Assessed Grades included:

  • Mock examinations from year 2 of the course
  • Progress since mock examinations
  • NEA work, if applicable, completed before the announcement of the cancellation of examinations
  • Likely to Achieve grades across the course
  • Y10 (GCSE) or Y12 (A Level) exams
  • Other test scores completed under test conditions.

This data was checked by the Senior Leadership Team, Examinations Officer and Data Manager and signed off by Mr Scoble before submission.

Judgements were based on how students would have performed under ordinary circumstances.  Where illness or other personal circumstances might have affected performance in mock exams (or in some cases other assessed work), consideration was applied.

Similarly, where students with special educational needs or a disability have an agreed reasonable adjustment (for example a reader or scribe), or other students have an agreed access arrangement, the school’s judgement took into account the student’s likely achievement with the reasonable adjustment/access arrangement in place.
