....to decipher school subjects.

What are these subjects please?
Ar Bs EG BSPS B C GGE MP Ph BSPS It
This is exactly as the GCSE results were given. Can't ask the pupil (niece) directly. sad story.
I think the examining body was Edexcel if that helps

Thanks in advance - I'm out of internet contact from tomorrow for a while and I'm worried that I can't see obvious English and Maths results, but convinced that they must be there.

To me Ar = Art, Bs = Business Studies, Ph - Physics and It - IT

flossieflower Thu 28-Aug-14 18:39:25

B = biology and C = chemistry presumably?
I'd guess EG as English and MP as maths?

jamakatab Thu 28-Aug-14 19:17:10

Yes, I was guessing EG to be English and MP to be maths, but if that's the case it's not very obvious is it?

jamakatab Thu 28-Aug-14 19:18:17

.....and what the heck is BSPS? Several pupils seem to have this twice.

I just googled BSPS Edexcel and got British Show Pony Society? Would that make any sense?

jamakatab Thu 28-Aug-14 19:36:34

Thanks swedish, I did the same thing - and no, no sense at all. confused

jamakatab Thu 28-Aug-14 19:38:37

I think the It will be Italian, rather than IT.

we have so far...
Ar - Art
Bs - Busines studies
EG - English
BSPS ??
B - Biology
C - Chemistry
GGE ??
M - Maths?
P - PE?
Ph - Physics
BSPS ??
It - IT

maybe S in BSPS is 5?

GGE Geography?

addictedtosugar Thu 28-Aug-14 20:24:23

could BSPS be biological sciennce physical science - ie some double awards in science? But then then Bio/Phy/Chem doesn't make sense.

What subjects did she do?

Clavinova Thu 28-Aug-14 21:16:32

I was intrigued by this and googled - the Warrington Guardian lists reams of results under pupils' names with these codes (but no grades). I found the key page though and GGE is Geography with BSPS being a Sports BTEC! www.warringtonguardian.co.uk/news/education/gcse/4570906.GCSE_results_codes/

Thanks so much for all your helpful replies; especially Clavinova for hunting out a key page. At least now I know she got Maths, English and the Sciences, which I'm sure she will have got the grades for to take her through to A Levels. No idea why BSPS appears twice, though she has always been very sporty. smile

Is it because some btec's are worth multiples of gcse's?
