New GCSEs are being introduced in English and maths for first examination in the Summer of 2017. All other GCSE subjects will change in the following two years. In future students will be grade 9-1 rather then A*-G as they currently are, with grades 7, 8 & 9 being equivalent to the old grade 'A*/A'.
You can find lots of information on the inetrnet about the changes however, to save you time we have provided you with a parent and student FAQ paper below made available by ASCL.
