The 9-1 GCSE Maths Grading Structure
The government (Ofqual) is changing the way GCSE results are graded. For maths, this means results are to be graded from 9 to 1, rather than the current A* to G. This change will take effect from 2017 onward.
Grade 9 will be the highest grade, slightly above the current A*,
A grade 4 or 5 is roughly the equivalent of a grade C.
Most students should aim for what is considered a 'good pass', which is grade 5 and above.
There will still be a choice of levels or tiers, the foundation, and higher. The foundation covers grades 1 to 5, and the higher covers grades 4 to 9. So whichever tier you choose, you can still get a good grade maths GCSE. So for college courses, university entrance, job applications, from now on you will need a grade 4 (or preferably 5) as a minimum requirement, rather than a grade C. Eventually all GCSEs will adopt this 9-1 system.
