How to stay motivated

  • Believe that you’ve done all the work necessary to be able to pass. Anything else is a bonus.
  • Treating your predicted GCSE grades as your upper target only.  There’s many reasons why GCSE students will not achieve their target GCSE grades 2022.
  • Don’t make your GCSE revision sessions too arduous.
  • Try as much as you possibly can to make your GCSE revision ‘fresh’ – rather than a daily chore.
  • Regularly reward yourself.
  • Employ short diversions and apply different learning methods that will make the work less monotonous and help it all sink in.

Our best advice is to ‘Keep calm and Carry On’

If your child is worried about taking their exam, we advise reassuring them they will be fine and just to do their best. Do not leave any anxiety issues, such as those described above, to get better on their own without any invention…since it can lead to a situation in which your child can’t focus at all on their practice.

What is Biology GCSE?

GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) is an academically / subject based qualification. Students in England and Wales study towards this over a 2 year period, Year 10 and 11. The idea of GCSEs is to give you a broad general knowledge, from where you can then become specialised in your A-levels.

When is Biology GCSE GCSE?

Yearly GCSE exams take place between May and June.

What happens to my GCSE Biology results?

Your GCSE subject choices and subsequently the results you get can affect the following:

  • the sixth form you go to
  • the qualifications you take next
  • your eligibility for a university course
  • which university you can apply to
  • your career prospects

What do GCSE number grades mean?

  • The highest grade awarded is GCSE grade 9.
  • With the lowest being GCSE grade 1.
  • The top GCSE grades 9, 8 and 7 are equivalent to the old fashioned GCSE grade A* and GCSE grade A.

GCSE grade inflation

We cover all school exam grades:

  • A-Level grades
  • GCSE grades

Teachers Inflating Predicted Grades

Millions of proposed GCSE and A-levels grades could be downgraded by exam boards this summer because teachers have been too generous in their predictions.

The predicted grades in the study were not the final ones submitted by schools, and Ofqual does not insist on an identical spread of grades each year.

In every subject that the think-tank FFT Education Datalab looked at, the average grade proposed by teachers for 2020 was higher than the average grade awarded in 2019.

According to one estimate, if GCSE grades in England were to be kept in line with 2019’s results, around a third of teachers’ predictions would need to be shifted downward.

ln 2019 just one in five students applying to university met or exceeded their UCAS predicted grades.

Teacher Predictions

Teacher predictions were based on an overall professional judgement, using the evidence of essays, previous exams and coursework. These teacher predictions will be moderated so the overall national results and shares of grades are in line with previous years.

English A-Level and GCSE Results days announced

  • GCSE results will be published on 20 August.
  • A-level results will be published on 13 August.
  • In other words, across England, all pupils’ grades for cancelled GCSE exam results and A-level exam results will be published in accordance with their original scheduling.

For those pupils who think they would have done better in an exam, there is the promise of another exam that can be taken in the autumn.

But for A-level students planning to use their results to go to university, or deciding whether to defer a year, it is still uncertain whether university campuses will reopen in the autumn or will be teaching online.

Students could sit A-level exams in October and GCSEs in November if they are unhappy with their summer results, under proposals published by the Government.

Exact dates have not been released because of the continued uncertainty around the full reopening of schools and colleges, exams regulator Ofqual said.

Evidenced assessment

The largest pill to swallow for pupils taking school exams this year is the use of ‘evidenced assessment’. In summary:

  • Unhappy pupils will still be able to take exams in September, or sooner if schools have reopened.
  • Any pupils still unhappy with their results can resit their exams in summer next year.

This system of “moderated assessment” was set out by the exam regulator Ofqual yesterday, two days after this year’s GCSE and A level exams were cancelled. Schools shut to most pupils yesterday afternoon.

  • Like this year’s A-Levels, the Government has announced that GCSE’s will also be marked using evidenced assessment.
  • According to Ofqual, teacher grades are to include mock exam results and marks from submitted work.
