GCSE grading update from the DE consultation

The DE consultation on the future of GCSE grading closed on 19 June, with feedback due in the Autumn. The consultation sought feedback on a potential change of grading from the current alphabetic grades A* to G, to the numeric grades 9 to 1 for GCSE specifications. The numerical grading structure has been put in place for England, with our counterparts in Wales deciding to retain the A* to G grading.

At CCEA we wish to reassure you that once the decision has been made by the Department of Education, we will ensure that a clear communication process and support continues to be available for all schools.
