This is not a substantial re-write by any means, it's making sure standards are right in a sufficient and even-handed way. AQA chief executive Andrew Hall said: We're happy to make the small changes Ofqual has asked for - and we'll do this quickly so schools can get on with teaching in just a few months' time. We also welcome the Regulator's commitment to enable new sample exam papers to be with schools and colleges from the end of June.
Ofqual have asked all awarding bodies to make changes to their sample materials, which we will be submitting to the regulator for approval by the end of the month. Pearson chief executive Rod Bristow said: In response to Ofqual's request , we will adjust some of our questions so that we move towards the middle ground in terms of relative difficulty, in the context of a similar expectation being made of all awarding bodies.

I am struggling with this, I'll be honest! The pixl boundaries have been set using the proportions due to get each grade. That process is fundamentally flawed as the pixl cohort is not typical of the cohort across the country - the top end is missing hence the low marks needed to get top grades.
The data at the other end is rubbish as well All in all not any use at all other than to give the kids a percentage of the exam they could do. PiXL have made a grave but obvious mistake in their analysis. This is why the boundaries are so low.
If things look rediculous they usually are! Hi All, I was browsing this thread as we are giving our C11's their mock papers in December and we are probably using the Edexcel Mock Papers supplied by Pearson. Is it worth sharing results and thoughts around grade boundaries? Also, can I ask Cheryl and Pi r squared which set of papers you created your grade boundaries for?
I'm surprised so many people are staying loyal to Edexcel. Does nobody else think the AQA papers are more accessible? I thought the edexcel mocks looked just awful.
Palmer , Nov 5, I've seen the word 'accessible' used a lot in this thread and others on TES. Do you mean 'easier'? DeborahCarol , Nov 5, Am I right that Edexcel have issued more sample papers - besides sets 1 and 2? Have you seen them? Are they any different? You must log in or sign up to reply here.
