In 2015 the government removed national curriculum ‘levels’ from primary and secondary schools.
At a similar time new and more challenging GCSEs were introduced. These new GCSEs are graded on
a 9-1 scale that does not entirely match the familiar A*-G scale. This means that the way assessments are graded and reported is changing with most students receiving a 9-1 grade in most subjects.
