Department for Education announces GCSE grade changes

GCSEs in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are changing. Between 2017 and 2019 schools will see a mixture of numbers and letters as GCSE grades, and by 2020 all subjects will be graded in a numerical scale of 9 to 1, with 9 being the highest grade awarded. The new grades are being brought in to signal that GCSEs have been reformed and to better differentiate between pupils of different abilities. Click here for more from the Department for Education.

With these modifications taking place it is apparent that schools will need to implement their own changes, but what does this mean for schools and their use of management information systems?

Well, for WCBS customers it means nothing at all. Our software has the capability of adjusting to these changes, so grades load into your system in the same way as they have done previously, they will just be numeric in appearance.

If you have any questions with regards to the above or just want some further clarification, please contact your customer account manager or a member of our sales team
