Change the way exams are graded

Comment 4th July 2010

Let us improve the way exams are graded to make the results more useful to educational establishments and employers. The purpose of exams is to compare people within a peer group.The revised system should have a fixed % of candidates achieving each grade – improvement in standards should be judged by the average grade. for eample:

Top 10% to get grade A, next 20% grade B, next 30% grade C, next 20 grade D, remainder F and fail 

Why does this matter?

It would help employers to judge between candidates and avoid the situation where all candidates are getting As and other tests are being devised. It would give a real incentive for

students to work rather than coasting to some A grades.
