My son told me "end of June" - not sure how reliable he is!

Including Level 6 ones??

Anyone know? - thanks!

Our school has said they will be in the end of year reports which are given out the week before they finish.

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 17:26:51

Schools will get the levels on Tuesday 9th July. Some papers are already back and very shoddily marked as per but we can only see marks atm, not levels - and the level boundaries change slightly every year.

Really feenie? I didn't know the papers were starting to head back already!

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 17:31:05

We were surprised to get one subject back so early - then looked at the standard of marking and could see why.

How the hell do you stuff up marking Maths tests? confused

mrz Thu 27-Jun-13 17:38:10

We have first lot of English papers back not looked at them yet.

GetStuffezd Thu 27-Jun-13 17:42:58

Oh god, really? I will be going through mine with a fine toothed comb. Well, the ones I don't agree with, anyway. Quite anxious as I'm in a single stream entry school for the first time, so feeling the pressure.

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 17:45:31

I can't remember a year in the last fifteen or so when we haven't sent papers back tbh - usually in writing though, but obviously not last year and this. Two reading last year - that's 8% in a single form entry, it's makes a massive difference to us. Don't usually have to send Maths back though!

GetStuffezd Thu 27-Jun-13 17:51:06

Feenie, can I ask - do you only send them back when you believe the mis-marking has resulted in the wrong level being awarded?

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 17:54:38

You are only allowed to send them back if it will make a difference to the level. Your Head will receive a re-marking instructions booklet and you need to follow the guidance. It's not difficult, just laborious. And I can recommend sending the papers back by recorded delivery - was stung once, never again!

GetStuffezd Thu 27-Jun-13 18:00:55

Oh god, that sounds stressful! Thanks for the advice. Wish the 9th would just HURRY UP!

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 18:17:04

Any time, GetStuffezd.

mrz Thu 27-Jun-13 19:05:56

I'm waiting for the marking instructions and thresholds before opening

GetStuffezd Thu 27-Jun-13 19:07:37

Why have you decided to do that, mrz?

mrz Thu 27-Jun-13 19:11:30

There isn't a great deal to be gained from opening now and I haven't actually had time.

GetStuffezd Thu 27-Jun-13 19:15:25

Hmm, I suppose so. I would waste a massive amount of time going over the children's answers and yes, that really would be pointless without thresholds.

mrz Thu 27-Jun-13 19:47:28

I might feel differently if I were the Y6 teacher

lljkk Thu 27-Jun-13 19:52:47

Aren't you in the least bit curious, mrz? Or do you expect no surprises?

mrz Thu 27-Jun-13 19:56:21

Until we know the thresholds it's just guessing

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 20:04:41

Thing is though, the period you have to send in re-marks is getting shorter and shorter - and in our case it seems directly proportional to the quality of the marking. I can more or less guess which are likely to be near the border and get a headstart.

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 20:05:38

I don't fill in the paperwork until I know the thresholds though, that really be a massive waste of time and energy.

KingscoteStaff Thu 27-Jun-13 21:44:26

We got the Maths back today. SHOCKING mistakes in the marking - page marks incorrect, totals incorrect...

My bet is that the level 5 boundary goes up by 2 this year as I thought it was an easy test.

Feenie Thu 27-Jun-13 21:50:29

That's our experience too.

What IS going on this year?

MrsTrunchbull Thu 27-Jun-13 22:23:41

Any idea what the L5 and L6 boundaries were last year, and are likely to be this year? DD got told her % marks today but not levels, so presumably they don't know them yet.

DC school website says we get reports on 12 July, so i guess KS2 results come out then, too. 2 weeks and counting!
