Re:Scottish Secondary school grades - comparing them to GCSEs
Thanks, so a 4 is what would be considered a pass (grade C) in GCSE speak.
I read that only 1 in 5 (or possibly 1 in 6) English 16 year olds leave school with 5 or more GCSE passes in the core subjects... English, Maths, Science (x2), a language and one of history or geography. 20%, when did that happen?!
I'm hiring for an unskilled job and the candidates range from those who have a very patchy work experience & no English or Maths qualifications, through Media stuides degrees, all the way to people with proper academic degrees from presigious universities. Anyway, one of them is Scottish and I didn't understand his grades - thanks.
