All students have two targets
- Minimum Expected Grade (MEG).
- This is given to you when you enrol and is based on your average points score at GCSE. It calculates the minimum that you should be hoping to achieve. four times a year your progress will be assessed against this grade.
- Aspirational Grade (AG)
- We have high expectations for all our students and we expect you to achieve more than 75% of people with the same average GCSE points score as you.
- This mean you will be aiming for your aspiration grade throughout your time at Rutland County College.
