Improved grading calculators for V Certs

Following feedback from centres we’ve made an improvement to the grading calculators for some of our qualifications.  Previously, these grading calculators provided an estimated overall grade based on a mid-range exam mark.  The feedback we’ve received from centres has indicated that an estimate based on a low exam mark will be more useful.  We’ve amended the calculators in line with this feedback so the estimate is based on learners achieving a borderline grade in the exam.

We hope this approach will prove more useful to centres.  However, we continue to advise that the grades provided by these calculators are estimates and centres should continue to consult qualification specifications or, if necessary, speak to our Customer Support team, should they require more accurate details of aggregation mechanisms on these or any of our qualifications.  Final grades will be issued by NCFE following the claim of certificates and will supersede any estimates.
