· The average grade is B for academic qualifications.

· The average grade is Merit for applied general qualifications.

New GCSEs

GCSE qualifications in England were revised by the government in 2017 to make them more demanding. This was to ensure that students leave school with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in 21st century Britain and to match those of their peers in high-performing education systems elsewhere in the world.
