Hi

Few questions for anyone who's in the know on these things please
Does anyone know if those that sat the 2nd Oct test get their results on the same day as everyone else (Oct 16)
Also are children who sat for the 2nd Oct exam compared with each other or with those that did the earlier sitting in terms of the overall marking and standardisation (i.e are both sittings treated as one paper?)
Also as age is a consideration for standardisation how many marks are (approx) might be deducted from a child born in say November against one born in say February?

Thanks

1. Yes
2. Always have been combined for scores purposes
3. It isn't a question of deducting (or adding) marks. Age standardisation compares like with like, age-wise. So if the February borns have a higher mean raw score than the November borns, they will the same standardised score will relate to a higher raw score for them than for the November borne- although received wisdom is that the younger in the cohort, the lower the score, it doesn't always work out like that.

Totally irrelevant to your post, I know, but I was just wondering if your child (or anyone who sat the second CSSE sitting) said much about the difficulty of either of the papers?

Little indication of the difficulty level I'm afraid, just happy it's all over and haven't mentioned it to her since!

Fair enough. I would seriously love to know how they organise the papers, marking and standardisation between the two sittings!
