The New Grade 9-1 GCSEs Explained

What’s changing at GCSE?

New GCSE Maths and English courses started in September 2015, and other subjects (including GCSE Science) followed suit in 2016.

The new courses are more challenging than ever, with all the exams set at the end of Year 11. There’s even a new ‘9-1’ grading system, where Grade 9 will be reserved for the very top tier of students.

  • The first new exams for GCSE Maths and English took place in summer 2017. The new GCSE Science exams started in summer 2018.
  • There’s no Foundation Level in the new English GCSEs – students of all abilities will take the same exams.
  • There are fewer course options in the new Science GCSEs. Most students will either take the new Combined Science course (worth two GCSEs) or three separate GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
  • Coursework and practical assessments play a much smaller part in the new GCSE courses, which means most of the marks are won or lost in the exams at the end of Year 11. No pressure…
  • For other GCSE subjects, the new Grade 9-1 courses will be introduced over the next few years. (Many of these new courses will start in September 2016, but we’ll have to wait until September 2017 for the final batch).
