What do the new GCSE grades mean?

In August 2019 year, a new GCSE grading system was introduced. Gone are the days of grades A-G and in their place are now grades 1-9.

It won’t be long before the Sarah West Recruitment team start getting CV’s with these instead of the traditional ones we’re used to, so here’s what the new grades mean in ‘old money’.

U grades will stay the same and A/AS Levels still keep the A*-E grades. There’s a summary of the most recent changes on Ofqual’s site.
