While KS3 students aren't subjected to formal national exams, their progress is continually assessed through topic tests, year-end evaluations, coursework, and teacher observations.
A recent reform has revamped the GCSE grading system, replacing the A* - G scale with the 9-1 system. Grade 4 represents the new pass standard, while Level 9 is the pinnacle of GCSE achievement. These new grades may bear similarities to the old ones; for instance, a low Grade 1 mirrors a low Grade G, a low Grade 4 aligns with a low Grade C, and a low Grade 7 corresponds to a low Grade A.
In English, there's no longer a foundation paper, with all students facing the same assessment. Science adopted the 9-1 system in 2018, with other subjects gradually transitioning to align with the core subjects.
