Scaling support for GCSEs in French, German and Spanish
Grade boundaries for the linear GCSEs in French (1FR0), German (1GN0) and Spanish (8SP0) are now based on scaled subject marks and are awarded at qualification rather than at paper level.
We have produced a guidance document to explain scaling and to show how this affects raw marks.
You can also use our online converter to help you transform raw marks into scaled ones. This should prove helpful when marking mock exams and used in conjunction with the relevant GCSE qualification grade boundaries and notional component grade boundaries.
