Comment – GSA Welcomes Ofqual’s New GCSE Grading
The Girls’ Schools Association today welcomes Ofqual’s announcement on how new GCSE grades will be awarded from 2017.
Sue Hincks, GSA Education Committee chair and head of Bolton School Girls’ Division, said:
“This is excellent news for students. Ofqual have listened and responded to teaching professionals, making sure that the distribution of top GCSE grades will vary from subject to subject according to the ability of the cohort. The most able students in our schools often stretch themselves by taking more challenging subjects, and it is good to know that they will still have access to their fair share of grades 8 and 9.”
