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.
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.
