Changes to the assessment and content of GCSEs began to be introduced in September 2015.
A new grade scale that uses the numbers 1 to 9 to identify levels of performance, with 9 being the top grade. The current grade A will be equivalent to a grade 7 and the acceptable pass grade that is currently a GCSE grade C will be at the top of a grade 4.
GCSE courses will no longer be taught in modules but as a two year linear course across the whole of years 10 and 11.
Most courses will have no ‘in course’ assessment, only a final exam.
Future exams will contain less short-answer questions and will concentrate on more extended essay-style exam questions.
Exams which have different tiers (higher, intermediate, foundation) will only be used where an untiered exam will not allow students of lower ability to evidence their knowledge and skills.
Exams will only be available in the summer (except where resits of maths and English are required for post-16 students which will be available in November).
The table below outlines the key dates and changes being made:
New GCSE to be taught from:
First results issued in:
||Ancient languages (classical Greek, Latin)
Art and design
Food preparation and nutrition
Modern foreign languages (French, German, Spanish)
