GCSE new grading scale - Factsheet
As you will be aware, students in Year 11 will be receiving their Maths, English Language and English Literature GCSE grades this summer as numbered grades, 9 - 1, rather than A* - G. Additionally Year 10 and Year 9 students are studying GCSE courses that are graded using the new 9-1 scale.
In preparation the Department for Education has this week published a factsheet for parents explaining the new GCSE grading scale.
The factsheet explains:
- the new GCSE grading scale
- standard and strong pass marks and what this means for students, schools, parents and employers
- when the new grades will apply to different subjects
