Hello, First time in a long time on here but I need need some help understanding what my daughters GCSE grade may be under the new marking system? She came home today with her Textile Design mark (AQA) for component 1 (60%) she got 53 out of 96 and for component 2 (40%) she got 62 out of 96. Does anyone have any ideas as to what her grade may be based on these results please?
If I am working out the percentages correctly and taking the weighting into account, that's 59%, what grade that is is very much a guess, but based on last year's English (which is all anyone has!) that's a high 5 or a low 6. Grade boundaries may be very very different for a practical subject tho. My gut says 59% is a 6. (I taught MFL)
