The new 9 - 1 GCSE Grading System

Due to government changes, new GCSEs were introduced in 2015. The new GCSEs have a grading system of 9-1 with grade 9 representing the highest level of attainment and 1 the lowest. The following points and accompanying diagram helps to explain this new approach:
  • Broadly the same proportion of students will achieve a grade 4 and above as currently achieve a grade C and above.
  • Broadly the same proportion of students will achieve a grade 7 and above as currently achieve an A and above.
  • For each examination, the top 20% of those who get grade 7 or above will get a grade 9 – the very highest performers.
  • The bottom of grade 1 will be aligned with the bottom of grade G.
