Can anyone explain to me why if my son passed all elements of his English assessments why he would be graded a d7? That's barely a pass is it? Been trying to find out as he is a bit gutted as he tried really hard

He got graded a 7?
9 is a**
8 is a*
7 is an a
So a 7 is still impressive
And he may have passed them all but maybe he didn't get all the marks
A 4 or 5 is still a pass! Just less

I’d definitely question the school the way they have done it is very strange. Appeals for students open up on the 26th of june I think so you could also launch an appeal. I think a P means pass but they haven’t given you a grade so I’d also ask about that as a P isn’t a grade itself

This year provisional grades are more than likely what he will get in august as they are teacher assessed, this is why you might want to ask the school about his grades as they can give you a reasoning as to why they gave him that result

If he passed all his units with Ds then it will be a D then. Did they give you % or marks for each unit-

RUAE is out of 30
Set Text - 20
Critical Essay - 20
Folio - 30

I think a D or 7 boundary is around 45-49% or 45-49 marks in total. A fail is 44 marks or less.
