Marking and Assessment on the Cambridge Nationals

To pass this qualification, you will have to complete all 4 units:


Each unit is worth 25 % of the overall mark and each unit is marked out of 60. The final mark is worked out by adding up your score for each unit and dividing by four.

The qualification can either be at level one or level two. It depends what mark you get. The grades are worked out as follows but note your work is moderated and grades and grade boundaries do change.
