14th July 2020: Students, your teachers have now given your centre assessment grades and rank orders to the awarding bodies. To produce final grades for you that are as fair as possible this summer, centre assessment grades for general qualifications such as GCSEs and A Levels will be standardised using a statistical process developed by Ofqual. This is to ensure standards are consistent across all schools and colleges.
OCR have created an infographic to show how centre assessment grades are standardised for GCSEs, AS and A Levels, and other general qualifications by all awarding bodies. For information on Cambridge Nationals, please follow this link: Cambridge Nationals
