aqa chaned it for this years gcse's i checked...now aqa higher are a*-d, anything just below a d is an e..anything below THAT is a U

unless like aqa music the paper is untiered (yay) this means that you can get anything from an A*-G..

this is just aqa mind
CCEA's Music isn't tiered either

Yeah the D is a "safety net". Which will come up in the examiner's report as "again this year we have candidates who were clearly entered for the wrong tier". Well that quote is used a lot in CCEA :rolleyes:

I thought a 'fall-over' E was the safety net (for AQA at least)?

I thought all Higher Tier exams are A*-D, then U unless they offer the emergency E. I never knew about it being A*-C otherwise U!

Some schools consider anything under a 'C' to be a fail, since you can't use it to get into sixth form or college. Is that what they meant, perhaps?
