    the chart shows a "normal" distribution
    We could say that it is a little bit skewed.

    NO SKEW!

    All surveys here are slightly to moderately positively skewed, so we have to allow for that ...

    Have you done this in previous years? Students' predictions are higher or less than the actual boundaries

    first time I am afraid, so it will not be much use to the students this year, but I hope it will be of some use for students in the future.

    1. Hi

      I am doing maths and further maths
      C1 C2 S1 M1 FP1 and D1

      However I have done really well in C1 and C2 but not so well in FP1. My school told me that whichever applied module I do better in goes towards my mathematics grade but it would suit me better if it went towards my Further Mathematics grade since then I could get an A in both courses rather than an A and a B. So how does it work??? Does it happen automatically that my best exam gets put forward for further maths? Or do I get to choose??

      Thanks so much

    Usually, the exam board does what they can do give you the strongest maths grade, then use the best of whats leftover to create your fm. But it really doesn't matter, my friend managed to go from A*B to A*A by switching around a few modules between the two, if you can see that by switching around modules you'll increase both grades, so be it, you'll get the grade. The modules must match though, for example, you cant have C1C2C3C4 M3D2, they'd have to go in order.
