Hello everyone,

I have a question and would like honest opinions.

As you all know the exams for 2021 have been cancelled and my school has been heavily focused on making us take exams (mainly high controlled exams).

Throughout all my exams I have been receiving roughly 69% in my a level*sociology*which my teacher says is a C grade. Which I was okay with until I started looking at past grade boundaries for a level*sociology*and other official websites which makes average grade boundaries for AQA A level*Sociology*which state then I'm actually getting low A's/high B's.

If this is the case and my teacher's gradings are wrong should I have a private discussion with her about the situation or is she right for giving me a C or is the past grade boundaries and average grade boundaries more reliable as there is a big difference?

Website references

-https://www.sociologysupport.co.uk/general-a-level-resources/grade-boundaries-for-aqa-a-level
(and then aqa a level*sociology*grade boundaries for past years)

(I hope this makes sense...)

Thank you all for taking your time to read this!

How has your teacher formatted the exams?

It should definitely be worth it to talk to your teacher about it regardless of the actual result because it should only be able to help you.

We did a proper 2020 paper in March which I got 69% (she said its a C although grade boundaries said it was an A)
Then we did an exam paper that she created herself which I got 68% which she said it was also a C.

I will be talking to her on monday about the issue
