GCSE Science Grading Summer 2018
Grading scale for GCSE Science
Students who have taken a single GCSE in Science will receive a single 9 to 1 grade for each subject, in the same way as for other reformed GCSEs.
Students who have taken Combined Science will receive an award worth 2 GCSEs, comprising two equal or adjacent grades.
Combined Science first award
Ofqual has recently released a blog to confirm that they have decided to allow exam boards to use grade 3-3 on the higher tier for this summer, matching grade 3-3 on the foundation tier, to ensure all students’ performance is recognised appropriately.
We can confirm we have put this in place in time for results to be issued.
