19th September 2017
2017 is the first year that GCSEs in the new specifications of English and Maths were awarded. Grades in these two subjects have been awarded from 9-1 (9 being the highest grade and well-publicised to be higher than a current A*). In all other subjects, grades remain for this year awarded as A*- G.
In a year where the ‘magic’ number has become a grade 4 identifying a ‘good pass’ in English and Maths, equivalent to a C grade, we are delighted that so many of our pupils at Cams Hill have achieved this ‘gold standard’.
