GRADING
• At Warwick Academy, we do not rank internally and do not calculate a GPA.
• IB students (Year 12 & 13) are assessed according to the IB criteria (Levels 1 to 7 / 1 the lowest and 7 the highest).
• We use the EDEXCEL and Cambridge (CIE) I/GCSE examination boards.
• Year 10 & 11 students are assessed using IGCSE/GCSE grades either on a 9 point letter scale or on a 1-9 & U number scale: A* / A / B / C / D / E / F / G / U = fail OR 1 /2 / 3 /4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / U = fail
o Grade A* is awarded for the highest level of achievement and grade G indicates the lowest level. C is regarded as a 'good pass'. The U indicates an unclassified result (fail).
o A grade of 1 is the lowest and 9 the highest with 4 regarded as a 'good pass'. The U indicates an unclassified result (fail).
• Years 1 – 9 are assessed using UK National Curriculum level descriptors 1 through 8.
