Request for Centre Assessed Grade and Rank Order

REQUEST FOR Centre Assessed Grade(s) & Rank Order.

If you would like to request the Centre Assessed Grade(s) and Rank Orders that were submitted by William de Ferrers school to the exam boards for the summer 2020 examinations series please see below:

Due to the cancellation of the summer 2020 examination series, this year’s GCSE and A-level (including vocational courses) grades have been awarded to students based on information provided by schools to the examination boards, these are known as centre assessed grades (CAGs). The centre assessed grades were determined using a wide range of school based evidence and were subject to extensive and robust internal scrutiny procedures which were quality assured by governors of the school. The following information was used: 

  • previous school data, where relevant 
  • year 10 and 11 preliminary examination results 
  • previous accreditations achieved (if relevant) 
  • previous progress data and past performance 
  • non-examined assessment (if relevant) 
  • attendance and engagement 
  • class work 
  • moderation/quality assurance exercises within departments 
  • access arrangements 
  • evidence from external agencies 

To ensure we did not disadvantage any student who was unable to access work during school closures we did not include work beyond 20 March (in line with government guidelines). 

Once collated, the centre assessed grades were submitted to the relevant exam boards. The exam boards then perform their own moderations and scrutiny before forwarding the grades onto Ofqual for further checking and statistical moderation. Please be aware the centre assessed grades may be moderated by the exam boards after submission by the school. 

Please be assured that staff have worked diligently in ensuring that the effort and work, put in by every student, is fairly reflected in the centre assessment grade for our students.
