Does the A* grade exist for this paper?

Bolognese Thu 18-Feb-16 23:00:41

Their promotional material reference A*. Why do you think it doesn't?

Bolognese Thu 18-Feb-16 23:02:18

That's 2014 material I read.

thanks Bolognese, do you have a link to that promo material? Also, is there any data on % of A* grades for recent years?

Bolognese Thu 18-Feb-16 23:19:39

I see it first referenced in Page 5 under GCSE Mathmatics A

Is this the way to do a link?

apologies for spelling, lagging computer.

I ask because on the OCR site the specification shows (Paragraph 4.4) that the top grade is A. Is it out of date?

Thanks for the link Bolognese. The A* is mentioned, but only for the GCSE. There is no mention of FSMQ Additional Maths 6993/01.

It goes from A to E, like an AS level.

I am certain (although not a maths teacher) that it is graded as an AS level with the top grade being an A.

I understood FSMQ doesn't have an A* grade. Not sure which board my DS is taking though.

Thanks all, I'll let my DS know.

My DD sat this exam and board in 2014 and an A was the top grade.

Bolognese Thu 18-Feb-16 23:53:11

well that is interesting

My DS is taking this this year. The top grade is an A.

I'm a maths teacher and I can confirm that an A grade is the top grade in this paper
