this level. Awareness of the limitation of their knowledge, and how this influences
any analyses and interpretations based
on that knowledge.
Exceptional knowledge and understanding of
material, main
concepts/theories at this level. Awareness
of the limitation of their knowledge, and how this influences any analyses and
interpretations based on that knowledge Cognitive/ Intellectual Skills (e.g. analysis and synthesis; logic and argument; analytical reflection; organisation and communication of ideas and evidence)

Issues identified and critically analysed within given areas. An awareness of different stances and ability to use evidence to support argument. Ability to apply concepts and principles outside context of study context. Generally sound conclusions.
Good level of analysis and synthesis. An awareness of
different stances and
ability to use
evidence convincingly to support argument. Ability to apply concepts/ principles
effectively beyond context of study. Valid conclusions.
Excellent analysis and synthesis. A range of perceptive points made within given area for this level of study. Arguments logically developed, supported by a range of relevant evidence. Explicit acknowledgement of other stances.
