    Plenty of people I should think. There is a big bunching of candidates getting in the mid 20s as the notional grade boundaries for the paper are very close.

    No, it doesn't work like that. The 3 units are separate, a poor performance on one unit does not lead them to drop the mark on another.

    Thankyou. Does the board mark the c/w or s/l down? Or do they accept the grades entered by the school?

    It depends on whether they agree with the school's marking.
    (They do scale the speaking and listening to make it out of 25 not 30, but that just a straight x 5/6. The may also moderate it.)

    So the school actually submits the tape and coursework? Not just the grades.

    So in the result they send back to the school the speaking is out of 25!

    They have to submit some of them so the exam board can check their marking is accurate.

    The S&L mark that is used to calculate the final mark is out of 25.

    The board might moderate that down. You don't have anything yet.
