GCSE English Language Mark Book With 2017 Fine Grade Boundaries (AQA, 2017)

GCSE English Language Mark Book With 2017 Fine Grade Boundaries (AQA, 2017)

This mark book is based on the new specification AQA GCSE English Language (8700) qualification (from 2017 onward). In it, I have broken the qualification down so that there is a column for each question for you to input the marks to. The mark book will then automatically generate a fine grade for each section of the paper and a separate grade for each paper overall. The mark book will then generate an overall total and fine grade for the qualification as a whole (paper one and paper two). In case you are unfamiliar with the term, a fine grade splits each grade (9-1) into three: 5a - The top end of a grade 5, almost working at a grade 6 5b - A secure grade 5 5c - The bottom end of a grade 5, almost slipping the grade 4 boundaries The grade boundaries were calculated based on the August 2017 results from the 2017 GCSE exam series. I have also included a row that works out the class average which is useful for comparing sets within the department, or for working out which question/section needs more work, or just to give the students a reference point for how well they did. This can be used as an individual mark book or for the whole department, simple copy the 'English Language Mark Book' tab to replicate the mark book and all of its formulas.
