Interesting Events in Scotland Re Exam Marking /Assessments by Teachers .
In the News
We already know that throughout the UK exam marks (as assessed by teachers ) were 10 -15% higher than previous years . I suppose that's understandable , though obviously they had to be moderated down in some way .
The Scots used a school's historic performances to do this moderation . Didn't go down well ! So the inflated exam results (assessments) stand .
We also know the rest of the UK's results are out Thursday (with a few exceptions ) . Will these be moderated down or left to stand at 10 -15% above previous years ?
Now the problem !
If results are moderated down it will give a huge advantage to Scottish pupils applying for various "good " universities . If they are not moderated down then tens of thousands of pupils will have the grades for the said "Good " universities .
I have no iron in the fire on this one but what will happen is interesting .
Me , I just wish they would add "Common sense " to the curriculum that our doubtless intelligent youth must pass ?
