9-1 Grades

 

Helping you to formulate grade predictions, apply interventions and track progress.

You have told us that mapping the Steps from the Pearson Progression Maps to indicative grades will make it simpler for you to accumulate the evidence to formulate your own grade predictions, apply any interventions and track student progress.

 

 

It’s here, our subject-specific mapping

We have consulted subject and grading experts to help us map our Steps in the Scale to indicative grades for each of the subjects.

Below, you’ll find our initial mapping of the Steps in the Scale to indicative GCSE grades (9-1) for Maths, English, History, Geography, Science, French, German and Spanish. 

We’re really excited about this work and its potential for helping teachers and students. It is, however, important to understand that this mapping is for guidance only to support teachers’ own predictions of progress and is not an accurate predictor of grades. We will continually update our Progression Maps, the Scale and indicative grade mapping to reflect the changes to national subject entry patterns and performance that inform our best estimates.

Indicative Grades - Sept 2016

Our Pearson Progression Scale is criterion referenced. If a student can perform a task or demonstrate a skill, we say they are working at a certain Step according to the criteria. Teachers can mark assessments and issue results with reference to these criteria which do not depend on the wider cohort in any given year. For GCSE exams, all Awarding Organisations set the grade boundaries with reference to the strength of the cohort in any given year.  For more information about how Edexcel set grade boundaries, go to:
