New GCSE Grades Explained

In 2017 a new GCSE grading system was introduced following new specifications by UK exam boards. The new GCSEs will be graded 9-1, rather than A*-G, with grade 5 considered a good pass like you grade C and grade 9 being the highest and set above the current A* standard.

See the table below to see how the past letter grades match to this new system.
