    ‘Today’s GCSE results reveal another increase in top and pass grades across the UK.

    The percentage of entries graded A/7 or above rose to 20.8 per cent, up 0.3 percentage points. This is the second successive time the proportion of top grades has increased since the reformed GCSE qualifications were first sat in 2017.

    The proportion of C/4 grades and above – considered as the "standard pass" – also increased slightly for the second year in a row to 67.3 per cent of entries, up from 66.9 per cent last year.

    Both grades also rose above 2016 levels reaching a four year high.’

    My science group mostly got the grades I expected and I am pleased. On the whole they were lovely hardworking pupils. One did massively better than predicted which is a pleasant surprise but I suspect sets the student up for failure at A level. The lazy tyke ( I do better when I don't revise Miss) got the grades I expected and which he deserved after a total lack of effort for two years.

    Happy with my students' results - one did slightly better than I thought but overall, my predictions were spot on :D

    Which makes the assumption that all subjects are of equal difficulty.

    Today I received my English and maths GCSE grades.
    I was predicted 4 in both, but no I got a 4 in maths which was great. English I only got a 3, how can this have happened. I know I’m not the brightest in the classroom but to be predict a grade and the not receive it well what can I say. I fell totally heartbroken and bewildered, I just don’t know why or how it happened
