AQA Marking Matrix

AQA Marking Matrix

After a lot of research and networking around this issue as well as attending the latest AQA CPD on Assessment. I have devised a marking matrix which will help you to assess students against the latest 9-1 grade boundaries. Due to OFQUAL not releasing any grade boundaries, this is only a guide summarised by converting last years grade boundaries against the old letter grade systems and analysing it against the new assessment criteria and marking format.
