    Well, I have been waiting on fire for this to come in since AGES, the QCA website indicates that the results will be sent to the school on the 22nd August (today). The question here is; did you guys receive your results through the post or did you have to wait till school and THEN told them.

    Please take time to reply, it will be very much appreciated and will [hopefully] put me off my daily misery (ooh, i can't imagine what it will be like in GCSE's).

    Anyway, thanks for your support everyone

    To tell you just how insignificant SATs are: I went into school on friday (25th), and saw a box with all of the marked papers for the English SATs just lying in the middle of the corridor, just outside the exam officers' office:p:

    Have SATS changed or something? When I did mine (2003 i think) we got our results in July just before the summer holidays...

    Well, I did my KS3 SATs in 2004, and that was the first year that the English papers were late in arriving. I think it was something to do with all of the marks being rather dodgy:confused:

    8 papers in the whole school had scores wrongly added up for science...

    Goes to show how dopey and drunk examiners obviously were when they were doing the papers.

    :p: And get this: people in 2004 at my school (after their first marking) and who were predicted levels 3 and 4 were coming out with level 7s People who were predicted level 6s and 7s were coming out with level 4s. That's how hideously wrong it went in my school:p: I think one other person and myself managed to keep our level 7s in English after the remarks:p:

    Hey, thanks everyone! . If i may ask, what is a level 7 in KS3 equivalent to GCSE grade wise, I'm thinking a C/B? and what would the predicted be for the final grade in results day (Year 11).

    Thanks,

    Please bear in mind, people, that this is the same troll who posted that they had got A*s in everything except English Literature; for which his/her mum refused to talk to them.

    (Original post by Ramadulla)
    I'm dead for English Literature , i think A* is out of the window; even-though I'm hoping to get 12 A*'s to hopefully 'compensate' , wish me luck please . Goodluck everyone, this night is going to be the most devastating/exciting night of the whole experience !

    Really, my family is pretty upset with me and my results, my mum is refusing to even talk to me or serve me anything .

    There is no equivalent to a level 7 in English. If you were to take the rumours that a level 7 is a B, and that a B at GCSE is equivalent to an E at AS, then you're pretty much screwed. You can't compare two different systems which are completely different

    **If that wasn't understandable, forgive me:p: Had a very tiring day:p:**

    KS3 SATs really don't matter, surely you should know this having done them.

    I got a 'low' level 7 and achieved A*A* in English and Lit, whilst my friend got full marks in her SATs papers and got AB. Really, it's about what you do after the SATs that matter - not what you get in them.

    Are they moderate when marking the papers or strict, compared to GCSE (as KS3 pupils are probably less aware of what the examiners really want from them as a whole)?

    I'd say less strict, considering you're two years younger...

    I wouldn't say there's that much of a jump though, more like a gradual transition. To give you an idea:
    My first coursework essay I achieved a C
    Throughout the year on my first drafts of other essay I got Bs and low As.
    End of year 10 exams I got low As in Lit and Lang.
    2nd/Final drafts of courseworks at the beginning of/ throughout year 11 got me an A* in both Lit and Lang courseworks
    Year 11 mocks I achieved a low A in Lang and a mid A in Lit.
    GCSEs I got A*A*
