Apprentice of Fine Arts (AFA) in Creative Writing: results for Summer 2020

Cumulative percentage of candidates:     A* 36%

A*-A 72%

A*-B 92%

A*-C 100%

Table shows results for 25 candidates from 7 centres: Abingdon School, Badminton School, Bristol Grammar School, Kingswood School; Marling School, Marlborough College, SGS (Stroud)

These results were awarded in accordance with our own procedures:

  • Candidates were advised to submit their portfolio of internally-assessed work (representing 60% of the programme) by the usual deadline of 15 May
  • The Principal Moderator moderated the portfolios from all centres
  • Where the moderated work enabled us to award the grade predicted by centres in February 2020 we did just that
  • In some cases the moderated work enabled us to award a grade higher than the predicted grade
  • In the few cases where the moderated work did not support the award of the predicted grade, we applied a Covidian metric: based on the fact that the average mark for last year’s examined units was slightly higher than the average mark for the internally-assessed portfolio, we were able to boost these candidates’ marks by a statistically-derived measure. In some cases, this enabled us to award the (slightly higher) predicted grade after all. In a handful of cases, it didn’t quite make the difference.
