Making the grades - a guide to awarding

AQA have made this film to explain the marking and awarding process which turns work by students into grades.

Watch to find out what happens after students sit their exams, how grades are awarded and how standards are maintained year on year.

Exam Contingency Day 2020 – 24th June 2020

 Wednesday 24th June 2020 will be a ‘Contingency Day’ for all exam boards in the UK.  Students must ensure they remain available for GCSE and A-Level examinations until this time.

 In line with Ofqual’s ‘exam system contingency plan’, this will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the exam period such that no students (or a large number of them) are able to take an exam when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day won’t be needed. But students should be available throughout the exam period, including on that day, in case their planned timetable is disrupted.

 Exam Results

 

  • At Key Stage 5, our students performed in line with national averages in their academic qualifications (achieving 0.33).
  • Additionally, students who retake English and maths at Derby Moor make progress which is significantly higher than other students nationally.
  • The 2017 results have led to the Sixth Form achieving an overall ALPS grade of 4 (top 40% nationally for progress) an improvement from ALPS grade 6 in 2016.
