The way exams are sat and graded changed in 2017 with a new scale that uses the numbers 9-1 to identify levels of performance (with 9 being the top level).
These exams are linear GCSEs, with assessment to be taken at the end of the course in June. There are no re-sit opportunities for GCSE exams.
Students are assessed by external exam only, except in subjects such as Art and Design which include a coursework element.
Examinations are split into Foundation and Higher tiers for Modern Foreign Languages, Science and Mathematics.
During the exam season, exam timetables are printed in our Coaching Chronicle, which is distributed to students during Coaching sessions. A copy of this (the At A Glance version) is also available to download by clicking here.
