All subjects will be taught with new specifications from Sept 2017 and will be graded 1-9 instead of A*-G. (Grade 1 = G; Grade 4 = C; Grade 7 = A)
Grade 5 (old grade B/C) will now be considered a good pass.
Very little coursework or controlled assessments.
Assessed by final examinations at the end of the course (May/June 2019)
Progress 8 will be the main school performance measure replacing 5A*-C incl English & Maths.
