yes, i know, thats what threw me :oops:

My daughter has just finished yr 11 but she started coursework for certain subjects - Maths, English and ICT in yr 9 so that they could get this out of the way earlier in order to comcentrate on other subjects coursework in yr 10. Also, it may have changed but when she did sats in yr9 there was no coursework involved.

Depends, as above, it could be GCSE.

i will find out at half 3, was just curious, she just text em a result for some coursework and dont know if its some kind of sat results or coursework for her gcse, will find out soon

When i was in year 9 i did some Maths and English coursework. It was a complete waste of time though as i ended up doing them both all over again from scratch as they were not GCSE standard.

Many schools do maths GCSE in year 10, alternatively, many do a more modular GCSE system now where coursework could very easily start in year 9. It just depends, also lots of reasons for other subjects. "Back in my day" they had us doing what they defined as "coursework" from year 7 so it could be anything.

Some schools can begin coursework early. Some schools for example do science in the news tasks, and these can start in year 9 in order for preparation. Not sure if this is for all schools, but when i was in year 10, we never got maths coursework?

the mark is a letter not a number, which made me think it wasnt sats

Sats marks can come like this

4c, 4b, 4a, 5c, 5b , 5a

GCSEs and relevent coursework always come as letters though, so perhaps is something relevant in relation to GCSEs.

Good Luck to your little girl/boy!

well i did my GCSE ICT coursework in Year 9, so it depends on the school.

Ok guys, it was english lit and is 8% of her GCSE mark, she got a B+ and was one mark off an a, so she dead chuffed but a bit peeved she was one mark off an A

I teach at a secondary school. After SATs we start coursework across all subjects - we basically begin the KS4 courses as all Y9 work is completed prior to SATs. It gives a flying start to Y10. Next year we are going to move all classes up as soon as GCSE exams are finished. The Y6 kids will also come up to us in June and begin our Y7 also.

I got
4 Sci
4 Eng
5 Maths
in Yr 6 SATS

Hoping to do slightly better this year though!

Year 6 SATS: 5,5,5
Year 9 SATS: 5,6,7

In year 9, I did some coursework in maths which was for statistics, because I was doing that as an additional GCSE so we do the coursework in years 9 and 10 and take the exam in year 10.
