Hi so I am doing my GCSEs in 2022 (next year). Does anyone know what basis teachers do grading upon and how they average it out and decide?

You’re probably going to have exams. But this year my teachers told us they literally took a mean of our assessments across the year to work out our grade.

With teacher assessed grades it’s different in every school so going back to exams is definitely a fairer option.

No one knows - this year schools were free to decide what to use to determine grades and last year the system was different again.

I don't think all schools took an identical approach, some derived the grades from assessments done across the year whilst others derived grades from assessments done last term (between April & May).

For example, my school said our grades would not be derived from a simple calculated average of all the assessments and instead would use a holistic approach as more weighting had to be given to more recent evidence.
