 Understanding the new GCSEs

Over the past two years, GCSE courses have been changing, as the government rolls out a series of changes. The main differences that students and teachers have been adjusting to include:

-          New grading scale, using 9-1, with 9 being the top grade,

-          Assessment is mainly by exams at the end of the course,

-          More demanding content.

Year 11

New GCSEs were introduced in English and Maths and examined for the first time in Summer 2017. Current Year 11 students across England will be the first to sit new GCSE exams in most subjects in Summer 2018. They will be awarded 9-1 grades in these subjects.

Product Design is the only GCSE for which students will still be awarded a grade between A* and G.

Vocational subjects such as BTEC qualifications will continue to be awarded Distinction, Merit and Pass grades.

Years 9 and 10

Students in Year 9 and 10 will be following the new courses in all of their GCSE subjects and they will be awarded grades 9-1 in their external exams at the end of year 11. Vocational subjects such as BTEC qualifications will continue to be awarded Distinction, Merit and Pass grades.

The new grading system

The content of the new GCSEs is very different and there will not be a simple and direct way to compare the new grading system to the old GCSE A*-G grades. However to ensure that the new system is fair, the percentages of students gaining particular grades will remain the same. So for example, the same proportion of students that gained an A or A* in the old GCSEs will now gain a grade 7 or above.

The government’s definition of ‘a good GCSE Pass’ will be set at a Grade 5, which will be equivalent to a high grade C. The new grade 9 will be awarded to only the very top students in the country, for exceptional performance.
