Please see here for the latest information for students completing in summer 2021 and teacher assessed grades (TAGs)
An assessed grade is different from the centre assessment grades (CAGs) used in summer 2020 and the teacher assessed grades (TAGs) used in summer 2021.
Assessed grades are produced using the unit results students have achieved through banked assessments. We do this using the same method we normally use when a student misses an assessment (for example due to illness).
This is why we issue them at the end of the course when there will be the most evidence to base the grade on. This makes your students’ assessed grades more reliable.
Deferred assessed grades from summer 2020
For Cambridge Nationals and Cambridge Technicals units from summer 2020, that students were due to take assessment for but could not do so, we will use the proportional method.
The average grade achieved in other units is calculated (grades are converted to a numeric scale). Where possible, only moderated units are used in the calculation of moderated unit estimates, and examined units are used in the calculation of examined unit estimates. If there are no units of the relevant type available, then moderated units would be used to estimate examined units, and vice versa.
This means where possible, performance in the examined units will not affect the assessed grade for the moderated units.
This only applies to students on a three year programme, certificating in 2022. For all other students, the summer 2020 units were included in the qualification level teacher assessed grade (TAG) process for students completing in 2021.
