Hi Holly
Yes, that's right, we've moved away from giving numbers for each criteria. Instead you'll find that your summative feedback will indicate, through it's use of language, which grade banding you fall into. These are unpacked in more detail within the assessment criteria:

The reason for the change is to make our assessment more holistic. This means assessors have more flexibility in how they reward your accomplishments. Instead of an exact number, say 55, they will provide an indication of your banding, eg. within the 50-59 banding. Moving away from an exact number allows for more movement within the criteria. This approaches enables higher marks as a whole. 

You will find more details about how it works within the narrative of this resource
Thanks, Christian
