Interim Teacher Assessed Grades Report
As we move towards our final assessment period for Year 11/12 and 13 in the week beginning 17th May- 24th May, we have just published an interim report which indicates the standardised percentages that students have already attained for at least 2 of the 5 pieces of evidence that will be included in the students portfolios. We hope this report is used carefully by the students to help them prioritise and focus on their upcoming assessments. The video above shows students how they should read and interpret the report.
Students are able to apply for special consideration using the link below if they believe that they have been disadvantaged whilst completing any of the pieces of evidence that have been used in their portfolio. Applications must be made by the 4th June so that these can be considered and any changes made to the portfolio of evidence before the grades are submitted. Please use the link below.
Assessments – Special Consideration
As the exams for summer 2021 have been cancelled, the usual process of centres submitting special consideration applications to awarding bodies will not apply this summer.
Hammersmith Academy is therefore allowing students to raise any mitigating circumstances that they feel may have adversely affected any part of their assessment portfolio.
If you believe that you have experienced any adverse circumstances at the time of any of the assessment pieces (historic or future) that are being used to make up your assessment portfolio then please complete the form below. You will need to complete a new form for each piece of assessment for which you have been adversely affected.
Any issues should be raised as soon as possible, ideally at the time of the assessment and prior to the submission of the teacher assessed grade.
Special consideration cannot be applied due to lost teaching and learning.
Special consideration is a post-assessment adjustment to a candidate’s mark or grade. This is to reflect temporary illness, temporary injury or some other event outside of the candidate’s control at the time of the assessment. It is applied when the issue or event has had, or is reasonably likely to have had, a material effect on a candidate’s ability to take an assessment or demonstrate his or her normal level of attainment in an assessment.
