    i just want to say that this is by no means an opportunity to boast about my mark. i am very proud of my grade but i also fully understand that there are some people who really struggle to achieve the top grades.

    my art teacher gave me my mark for component 1 of my gcse fine art. i understand that this is open to change in moderation come may/june time. my marksheet said "high 8, 93%". if 93% is a high 8, then what on earth is the mark for a 9?!
    some of my other classmates told me that 71% or something similar was a grade 7. so what would i have had to have got to achieved a grade 9?

    once again, not a boasting opportunity, instead one to discuss grade boundaries.

    thanks

    Hi.
    The grade boundaries have not been determined as yet so your teacher should not be translating the marking into grades/levels.

    93% should be a 9. Your teacher was probably thinking that 95% was the boundary for a 9 but I think that the boundary for a 9 will probably be around 85%. It just depends on how other people do in art this year: if the average mark is high then the boundaries will also be high.
