All downgraded Scottish Awards to be reversedWatch
I can see that but progress between January - May is omitted, which would leave 'crammers' who didn't do too well subject to poor grades or their teachers trying to inform otherwise
I do agree that it would give a good outline to performance though.

Being able to sit the Autumn series is in no way comparable to this Scottish move. Sitting the exams means sacrificing your university place for not even a guaranteed improvement. Scottish pupils have been simply let off with a 13.7% higher pass rate and a complete lack of moderation of the biased and unfair teacher predicted grades.
Worth saying the pass rate isn't necessarily the same as the proportion of students getting different grades each year. A single statistic can't tell you everything about the results this year.
But a 12% point increase in pass rates in exams is another way of saying that 12% of exams marked went from D to C or above. This is less than the proportion of grades adjusted since C to B is not counted.
Schools set mocks very differently and at different times so the data would not have been comparable between schools. even in one school I know different department have different strategies - e.g. make to hard and the grades low to kick students into action vs. tell them the questions before hand so the results look good and the head isn't on my back about the poor results.
or is it a waiting game
but it is a waiting game :|
