You should not attempt to grade the work; you should be marking the work by applying the marking criteria in a consistent manner.
The controlled assessment and coursework grades will be awarded at the end of each examination series using the standard code of practice awarding process.
Grade boundaries, which are subject to change each exam series, are published on the grade boundaries page of our website. For summer 2016, they'll be available to download from results day: 17 August 2016 for GCE and 24 August 2016 for GCSE, Edexcel Certificates and International GCSE.
Please also remember that the mark you submit to us should be the total raw mark, not the UMS mark. The UMS marks are allocated by us as a result of the awarding process.
A score of zero should only be used if a candidate has submitted work that is found to meet none of the assessment criteria. An X should be used for any candidate who is absent.
English/English Language 5EH01
English Language 5EN3A
Please remember to include transcripts/recordings and their sources used for the Spoken Language Study if you have not used Edexcel resources.
For 5EH3A and 5EN3A, please note that one mark needs to be entered on Edexcel Online:
