As part of global changes to GCSE examinations, some subjects have been graded on a new 9-1 scale this year. This means that students have letter grades for some of their examinations and a number grade for others. A grade 4 is equivalent to a low grade C, while a grade 8 or 9 is equivalent to an A*. Most schools are still reporting their results as letter grades.

So far, results have been made available by Dover Court International School, Dulwich College and Tanglin Trust School.

At Dover Court International School (DCIS) 92% of students achieved A*- C and 100% achieved A*-A in biology, chemistry and physics. In addition, 100% of students achieved A*-B in global citizenship and in French; 100% were graded A*-C in maths, history, English literature, music, design and technology and drama.

In the Year 11 cohort at Dulwich College, 78% of students received A*-A (or equivalent), 40% of total grades were A*, 94% of grades were A*-B. Just over half of Year 11 students – 57% – secured eight or more A*-A grades.

At Tanglin Trust School, 98% of all grades achieved were A* to C and 77% of all grades were A*-A. In addition, 35% of students achieved A* or A in all their GCSE subjects; 100% were graded A*-C grade in both English language and English literature; and 99% of students received an A*-C grade in maths.
