Exam analysis D&T 1-9

Exam analysis D&T 1-9

Not 100% accurate until we actually get some grade boundaries from the exam board, however, this is based from the English and Maths grade boundaries of last year so shouldn’t be a million miles away. Will be very handy for those of us with mock year 10 exams coming up and need to have something to base our marks from, it will at least give the students some idea of where they are up to! This is fully automatic, simply add your class lists and teacher name if you have more than one subject teacher (we have 8!) and add the marks, the grid will do everything else for you. It is then also very simple to change the grade boundary for next year, simply un-hide the columns on the right hand side and alter the numbers to match the percentage.
