how are target grades predicted in secondary school? watch

    • Thread Starter

    we have a sats level and an end of year level and an english mark. how does this predict my grades. ( english is my second language but i speak it as perfectly as a native englishmen). i have much higher sats scores and end of year levels than my peers but somehow my target grades are low. do you think it is about my language?? if you heard me talk, you would've thought i was english)

    The government measures secondary schools by the progress pupils have made since their KS2 SATS in Year 6 so most targets are set based on those. Your predicted grades should be based on how you are actually doing now.
