New GCSE Grading Structure - Ofqual

GCSE Grading Reform

Reformed GCSEs have been introduced gradually over three years from September 2015. They will be graded from 9 to 1, instead of A* to G with 9 being the highest. Students taking GCSEs over this period will therefore receive a mixture of 9 to 1 and A* to G grades. Students will not lose out as a result of the changes. Ofqual will use a statistical method?(known as comparable outcomes) in 2017 so that:

  • 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 a grade A and above. 
  • the bottom of grade 1 will be aligned with the bottom of grade G. 
  • grade 5 will be awarded to around the top third of students gaining the equivalent of a grade C and bottom third of a grade B. The Department for Education has defined a grade 5 as a ‘good pass’. 

To find further information about the timing of the changes to each subject, visit the government's website below.
