Understanding the new GCSEs

Over the past two years, GCSE course 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.

 

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.
