What marks is Band 1? A*?

Postby Pen88n » Sat Jun 26, 2010 9:19 pm

Hi,
Always hear people mention Band 1, 2, 3....etc. or A*, A, B, C.....What marks range are these referring to? Sorry this may sound like a stupid question, but I really have no idea and want to clarify. Thanks

Thanks, mumwgals, for the info. Really helpful.

I sort of know that the PSLE grading A*, A, B...etc. has some formal format though I believe it is normalised based on the distribution of the cohort's score. So it is actually not easy to get A* afterall :roll:
