Does anyone know the certificate boundaries for this year's online paper?

Was the test online this year? We've not heard anything about it from our school.

Yes it was moved online because it couldn't take place in schools in April. Results came out today

My dd did the junior maths challenge but she hasn't had the results

This is on the home page:

Award thresholds - Gold 102+, Silver 86+, Bronze 70+ (All years)

You can login using the details they used to access the test and it will show the score.

Ah, they're up there now - thank you. Did Y7 sit a different paper to Y8 this year? There seemed to be an option for each year group when DD logged in but I thought the Junior Paper was typically for both year groups combined

DS did it and had a meltdown afterwards as he didn't use a calculator as it wasn't allowed and then found out most of his class did!

Spent ages trying to convince him that he'd done the right thing sad

I hear you Ducky. I imposed same strict conditions on my DC. Much higher grade boundaries than previous years tell their own story (jump up can't all be accounted for by absence of negative marking)

Well, he's just found out he got Silver and is pretty happy. smile He said he's glad he got Silver honestly rather than Gold by cheating.
It never occurred to him to cheat beforehand.

If you look at the paper , a calculator would have helped on 3/4 of the questions at max.
