Grade boundaries are the minimum number of marks needed to achieve each grade. Whilst exam papers are written to the same level of difficulty, they do vary each year. Grade boundaries ensure that whenever the exam is sat, students receive the same grade for the same level of performance.
For unitised specifications, grade boundaries are expressed on a Uniform Mark Scale (UMS). UMS grade boundaries remain the same every year as the range of UMS mark percentages allocated to a particular grade does not change. UMS grade boundaries are published at overall subject and unit level.
For linear specifications, a single grade is awarded for the overall subject, rather than for each component/unit that contributes towards the overall grade. Grade boundaries are published on results day.
The 'notional' grade boundaries for each component are also available. Component boundaries are 'notional' and intended only as a guide, they are not official grades.
Current grade boundaries are available here.
Grade boundaries for past examinations are held on the 'Results Statistics' area of our website.
Following the publication of results for each examination series, WJEC offers a range of post-results services including:
Clerical re-check - a re-check of clerical procedures leading to the issue of a result
Post-results review of marking - a review of the original marking to ensure that the agreed mark scheme has been applied correctly
Access to scripts – an electronic version of the script, either as a priority or non-priority service
Post-results review of moderation
Advice and guidance is available in the following documents:
WJEC follows the same procedures in January as the JCQ procedures for the June and November series.
If you wish to submit an application for a review or apply for access to scripts, centres can do this online via WJEC's secure website.
If private candidates have concerns about their examination results and wish to make an application for a review or if they wish to apply for access to scripts, they should contact their entering centre for advice. Private candidates may also apply to WJEC directly by requesting an application form from email@example.com
WJEC follows the JCQ processes on appeals as documented in the JCQ 'Guide to the awarding bodies' appeals processes'.
Our 'Appeals – A guide for centres' document outlines WJEC's processes for appeals concerning enquiries about results, malpractice, access arrangements, special consideration and other examination and assessment administrative decisions.
