Hello! I wondered if anyone could tell me what grade boundaries you are using for the new Psyc GCSE (AQA)? We are just in the process of preparing our year 10 mocks. (Apologies if this has been asked before) Thank you, Katie

Hiya, I spoke with English and Maths about the grade boundaries they had used when first teaching new spec and how they had reflected the grade boundaires in the first real exam. That, in combination with the sort of boundaries we have had historically in Psy, has lead us to using....

9 90%

8 85%

7 75%

6 70%

5 60%

4 50%

3 45%

2 35%

1 20%

We have used the boundaries for end of topic tests so far this year and it looks like kids are performing and progressing in the way they usually have. Hope that helps!
