Hi,Dunno if it's true but heard only 32% passed Berks this year? Anyone has any updates?
I'm sure that there is a thread somewhere discussing whether different areas' standardisation is against the actual cohort which took the exam or a national 'test' cohort, but in the normal way of things,
- c.68% of candidates will fall between a standardised score of 85 and 115.
- the other c.32% will be split between (less than 85) and (greater than 115).
So, with a pass score of ?110, the expected percentage passing would be 16% (those scoring >115), plus a proportion of the 34% (the half of the middle 68% whose scores are above 100) with scores between 110 and 115. They are on the 'downward slope' of the distribution curve, so will be less than a direct third of the 34%.
So 32% seems quite good, really
