Additional Guidance on Grading

Achieving a Merit

Achieving a Distinction

GD1: Achieving a Merit on this GD involves demonstrating a very good grasp of the unit material. This is shown through the content of your work. A Merit means that most of your content is correct. There may be some errors. If your work is not very clearly presented, this may undermine the evidence of your understanding.

 

GD2: This GD relates, not simply to your understanding of the knowledge, but to your ability to use/apply it with very good levels of accuracy in response to both tasks. For example, the Case Study demands accurately applying knowledge of a chosen profession’s expectations regarding interpersonal skills, and a wider awareness of cultural diversity. The Reflective Essay requires evaluation of own skills-not just description of them.

GD7: A very good engagement with the overall demands of the brief will be demonstrated by your work generally:

  • Conforming to the structure and presentation requested for each of the tasks
  • Demonstrating very good levels of accuracy regarding spelling, and punctuation so that the work reads clearly.
  • Making a very good attempt to evidence the use of sources.

Overall, to achieve a Merit you should engage very well with the general demands of the brief in terms of demonstrating knowledge of the unit’s topics and an ability to apply this knowledge very well to the various tasks. Additionally, the wider academic writing skills (research, referencing etc.) should be demonstrated to a very good standard.

GD1: Achieving a Distinction on this GD involves demonstrating an excellent grasp of the unit material. This is shown through the content of your work. A Distinction means that the content of your work is correct. This does not require perfection, but any inaccuracies must be few and relatively minor. If your work is not very clearly presented, this may undermine the evidence of your understanding, so a Distinction requires very clear presentation of your work in all its forms.

 

GD2: This GD relates, not simply to your understanding of the knowledge, but to your ability to use/apply it with excellent levels of accuracy in response to both tasks. For example, the Case Study demands accurately applying knowledge of a chosen profession’s expectations regarding interpersonal skills, and a wider awareness of cultural diversity. The Reflective Essay requires evaluation of own skills-not just description of them.

GD7: An excellent engagement with the overall demands of the brief will be demonstrated by your work consistently:

  • Conforming to the structure and presentation requested for each of the tasks
  • Demonstrating excellent levels of accuracy regarding spelling, and punctuation so that the work reads very clearly.
  • Accurately evidencing the use of sources.

Overall, to achieve a Distinction you should engage to an excellent level with the general demands of the brief in terms of demonstrating knowledge of the unit’s topics and an ability to apply this knowledge, with high levels of accuracy, to the various tasks. Additionally, the wider academic writing skills (research, referencing etc.) should be demonstrated to an excellent standard.
