GCSE grading system
New English Language, English Literature and Mathematics GCSE courses have now begun and from summer 2017 they will be assessed differently with pupils achieving grades 9-1 rather than A*-G. Other subjects will use the new grades from 2018.
A good pass will now be considered to be a grade 5 and pupils who do not achieve this in English and Mathematics will have to retake the examination until they do, although for the first year, the government will consider a good pass to be grade 4.
Approximately the same proportion of pupils who currently achieve:
• grade A or higher will receive a grade 7 or higher
• grade C or higher will receive a grade 4 or higher.
The school is making a gradual change towards the new grades and until this is complete you will see both old letter grades and new numerical grades on reports.
