Just stick to the assessment objectives, ensure your answers are succinct, be innovative and you're sorted
Excellent advice

Hi,
I got an 8b in a recent assessment, I'm really pleased as usually I only achieve 6a's.

I was wondering if any had any tips/advice on maintaining this level or even surpassing it.

All answers will be greatly appreciated.
A level shouldn't be given for one piece of work - and actually assessment by leves has gone!

A lot of schools are still using them to give pupils some sort of feedback. We use the computing at schools levels at my school but we only assess 4 week long projects or units of work that way - everything else I mark is a simple tick and a question to test understanding.

Well done! An 8B is brilliant. Definitely talk to your teacher about what they think the next step is and make sure they know that you want to maintain this level.

I don't think I've ever given an 8 out to year 9 pupil and I'm quite a generous teacher so you definitely should consider it a big achievement

Its really not that impressive I started both of my GCSE courses in GCSE English Language and English Literature at the start of Y9 my first reading and writing coursework pieces I got an A overall and in Speaking and Listening I got an A and I got an A and a C in the two exams at the end of the year(resat the C grade and ended up getting two A*s in Y10 in the full GCSEs).Level 8bs don't compare to real A grades received in Y9 for exams/coursework that I actually count towards your GCSE grade.
ill let u in on a secret

its known that they let kids take GCSE early to allow them the most amount of retakes.
let that sink in. they didnt think you could do it first time, so they started you early. let that sink in
you are not special. do not rain on this kids parade about their level 8.

retaking show off scum.

Ahh yr 9. I think the only subject I recieved at 8B in was Geography actually for this project I did on the environmental impacts of tourism.

Last year I only managed to get an A in GCSE geography though - missed an A* by 4 marks!

That's really good! I'm going to take geography as one of my GCSE's, have you go any advice

The highest level I've got this year is a 7a. We had to create a booklet on the civil war and the blood diamonds.

I would say just do loads of practice papers and learn and revise the case studies in lots of depth!

That is rubbish my school typically started the two year course in year 9 and ended it in year 10,some people did resit Language in Y11 but in general most people finished English in year 10(in other years they did other things in Y11 like doing an AS in English but in my year we got allocated study time instead) and you were only allowed to resit Language.I'm not the one showing off here saying "8b in English" in the title of my thread.

The reason was that they wanted resit opportunities because they thought they could play the system. It blew up in most schools' faces though and ended with pupils performing below expectations.
