NC Levels are not used in Years 10-13. Instead, we use GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A Level grading criteria.
Different grade boundaries may be used if an assessed task is unrepresentative of actual GCSE, IGCSE, AS or A Level standard work, for example if it covers a restricted range of work or more basic skills.
At BSK, only Grades A*-C are considered to be I/GCSE pass grades. At AS and A Level, Grades A*-E are passes, although only A*-C are considered to be good passes.
At AS Level, Grade A* is used within the school to indicate a high Grade A (90%+). However, Grade A* is not reported for AS Level subjects on winter reports, and is not awarded for actual AS Level qualifications.
‘U’ means ‘unclassified’ and is not a pass grade. Grade X indicates an inability to assess, usually due to non-submission or non-attendance.
