New video: reflecting on summer 2017 exams and preparing for 2018

Wednesday 1 Nov 2017

By now, results day 2017 may seem like a distant memory, as you take the next steps to get your students ready for assessment in 2018.

Now that the dust has settled a little, we’d like to share our new video that reflects on the 2017 exam series, and includes interesting insights to make preparing for next summer more straightforward.

AQA’s Head of Curriculum Strategy, Dale Bassett, takes you through 2017 results day and how students across the country performed in the new GCSEs.

The video covers:

  • entry patterns and tiering
  • grade boundaries and the proportion of students achieving different grades
  • comparable performance between the old A–G grading and the new 9 to1 grades
  • subject-specific insights on GCSE English, maths and the sciences
  • next steps and ways we can support you through this teaching year.

We think you’ll get a lot out of Dale’s presentation – feel free to share with your colleagues!
