The higher candidates have access to the grades 3 through to 9.
As we have had no guidance from Justine Greening our best guess at potential grade boundaries for total score from the three papers added together for the new GCSE are:
Level 9 210+ Less than 2% of pupils will receive this nationally.
Level 8 170+
Level 7 140+
Level 6 110+
Level 5 80 + (Justine says this is a strong pass)
Level 4 54 + (Justine says this is a standard pass)
Level 3 40 +
These are broadly in line with other school's predictions.
