GCSE History 9-1 grade descriptors

GCSE History 9-1 grade descriptors

(4)
Is your school asking for descriptors for each of the new GCSE grades? I have written a descriptor for each 9-1 GCSE History grade in table format on Microsoft Word. I have identified six criteria for each GCSE History grade: 1. extended writing, 2. using sources, 3. interpretations, 4 own knowledge, 5. reliability, 6. specialist terminology. I have written a descriptor for each criteria/grade which I believe shows clear progression. Unfortunately it is over three pages and will not fit on one page.
