EXPLANATION OF FINE GRADING
LEGACY GCSE
Sub-levelled grade based on
professional prediction
of what that pupil will attain at the end of the
course, in relation to coursework, tests, examinations, homework, classwork and effort that the pupil
has put in to date. These grades range from G
A*. (
This is cumulative over a two year course –
formative assessment)
Definitions of sub-levelled grade (applicable to all grades):
C1 = secure C, with intervention may be a B (for C higher tier pupils only).
C2 = secure C, may need some focused intervention.
C3 = on for a C, without intervention could slip up and get a D.
For legacy GCSEs the ‘golden standard’ is a C grade.
NEW GCSE
Sub-levelled grade based on
professional prediction
of what that pupil will attain at the end of the
course, in relation to coursework, tests, examinations, homework, classwork and effort that the pupil
has put in to date. These grades range from 1
9. (
This is cumulative over a two year course –
formative assessment)
Definitions of sub-levelled grade (applicable to all grades):
5a = secure 5, with intervention may be a 6.
5b = secure 5, may need some focused intervention.
5c = on for a 5, without intervention could slip up and get a 4.
