GCSE Results

Published: 24/08/2017 10:11:00 | Category: Exams

It has been yet another successful year for our Year 11 students at Carre’s, with 95% of the students securing 5A*-C grades or their equivalent. There has been much talk in the media recently about the exams, with the introduction of more rigorous course content and new grades, and they have undoubtedly become tougher, so we are delighted that the efforts of our students, staff and the support of parents have been rewarded by such good results. We pride ourselves on teaching beyond the exam requirements at GCSE, on not ‘spoon-feeding’ our students, while also enabling them to engage in a very busy programme of enrichment activities, which see Carre’s students moving on to the next level, be it to do A levels, BTEC diplomas, college courses, apprenticeships or employment, and this is cause for celebration. Some individuals have overcome considerable challenges to achieve their results and I am very proud of each and every one of them. The results are a testament to the hard work and motivation of the students, alongside support from their teachers and parents. Aligned to the recent excellent results in the Sixth Form, our students can look towards a very bright future. Many students are delighted and justifiably proud of their success, some with particularly exceptional results.

New GCSE Grading System for 2017

Under the new grading system, there is a scale from 1 to 9 where scoring a 9 is the highest possible mark.

The new grades are mainly in line with the old system, but scoring straight 9s has become harder. This is because the top score is a step above an A*.

The 1 grade is equal to either a high G or a low F. A standard C pass grade is now a 4, and a 5 is equal to a strong pass.
