New GCSE grading system

Ofsted have released a postcard detailing how the new numerical grading system will measure up against the current system.

Level 4 and above equates to Grade C and above.

The reformed GCSEs will be introduced from September 2015.  Students completing GCSEs in 2017 and 2018 will find they receive a mixture of both numerical (1-9) grades and the traditional A*-G grades, depending upon the subjects taken.
