Hi,

I am thinking that the original grade boundaries I used for the Sociology gcse need to be revised in response to the new spec but unsure by how much. I used to award 60-70% a C as a rough guide. 

Is anyone in a similar position or can advise on what they have done in response to the new spec.

Also just generally how are people getting on with the New Spec? I have issues with it!

Thanks,

Jamie

Hi Jamie,


Similar boat. I have been pretty much sticking to 50% being a Grade 4 (low C) then built up from there by 10%.


Do you have an email? Happy to share ideas and resources :)

Hi,

Thanks for the response and 50% sounds quite sensible. How have you found the spec generally? I am getting annoyed with the vague nature of the mark scheme and its lack of correlation with the text books.
