GCSEs are the benchmark tests for children in Britain. A new grading system was introduced in 2017. It replaced the old A to D grades with 9-1. The government has announced that a grade 4 will be known as a ‘standard pass’. A grade 5 will be known as a ‘strong pass’ and will be equivalent to a high C and low B on the old grading system.
Grade 4 will remain the level that students must achieve without needing to re-sit English and Maths post-16.
The most important points about GCSE are:
Not leaving it too late to help your child. School mocks are a general guideline as to what real results may turn out to be but these may not take place until January.

There will be new, more demanding content, which has been developed jointly by the Government and the exam boards.
Courses will be designed for two years of study – they will no longer be divided into different modules. As a result, students will take all of their exams in one period at the end of their course.
