    A little research confirms that O grades existed pre 1987 and conferred an O level pass and N grades existed 1987 - 2000 and was a "Nearly passed" grade.

    I stand corrected. I didn’t get any Os or Ns so memory is vague. I do remember my friend got 3 fs. Yes in lower case when all other grades were upper case. It was like they were very quietly saying oops you’ve failed. Didn’t help as they were posted on a wall for all to see in my school!!

    I have a certificate for Maths with Stats O/A level. Taken in 1974 at the end of the lower VI. I suppose it could be regarded as a for runner of AS levels.
