using maths data for further maths CAGWatch
I study mathematics and further mathematics for a level, and I received my results on the 13th. I got an A* in maths and a B in further maths.
I contacted my school as I had reasons to believe that I deserved at least an A in further maths instead of a B, and it turns out that they put B for my CAG, not an A. And they said that the grades were calculated with professional judgement with objective evidence.
They also told me the methodology behind how they calculated my CAGs for maths and further maths.
They used a combination of the Yr 13 mathematics mock exam grades, and Yr 12 topic tests, at a ratio of 4:1. This exact method was also used for the calculation of my further mathematics CAG.
In conclusion, they used evidence for mathematics when they were calculating the CAG for further mathematics. Nothing from further mathematics was even included in the CAG allocation process - the topic tests, homework/classwork, etc, were not included.
Is it only me who thinks that this is illogical?
Mathematics and Further mathematics are separate subjects for a reason - it doesn't make sense as to why they'd use maths data for further maths grades when further maths data were available.
Please let me know what you guys think.
