Mock Exam Report
Please find attached your child’s first year 11 mock exam report.
The “Year Target’ is the grade, based on national benchmarks and your child’s end of Year 6 level, that we consider they should be capable of achieving by the end of this academic year.
The “ATL” (Attitude to Learning) is 1 = Outstanding, 2 = Good, 3 = Requires Improvement, 4 = Unacceptable.
“November Mock Exam” is the grade that your child has been awarded from their November Mock Exams, you will notice that each grade broken down into one of three categories:
|+||A secure grade with the potential to move to the grade higher.|
|=||A secure grade.|
||A vulnerable grade that is in danger of slipping to the grade lower.|
The aim of this more detailed breakdown is to provide you with information about where additional work or support is needed.
The mock exams been marked according to exam specifications and moderated across departments using exam board marker expertise. These grades represent as accurate a picture as we can give you for your child’s performance, at this time, using the grade boundaries for those particular papers. More importantly, they allow teachers the ability to identify where pupils’ learning gaps are and to redesign lessons and booster sessions appropriately, to close these gaps.
Please note; for BTEC subjects, the grade represents the current evidence that your child has submitted in that subject rather than a mock exam result.
