The presentation below explains how your ‘current attainment’ grade in Year 10 works. Over the two year GCSE course, your teachers would expect you to improve by two whole grades, if you are making good progress in their subject. The grades take into account your current performance in that subject, your previous attainment by the end of Year 9 and the fact that the majority of the GCSE course has not been taught yet.
This is comparable to marathon training. It’s a long process, requires a significant amount of effort and you do not reach your personal best during your first run.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your teacher, Mr Graham or Mr Marande.
