Query on early entry GCSE legacy film studies/league tables

    We entered our year 11s (2019 leavers) for their GCSE WJEC/EDUQAS Film Studies exam at the end of Year 10 (summer 2018), which was on the legacy A* to G spec - they had studied it for 2 years as we have a 2 year KS3 and they sit one exam early at the end of year 10.

    We've looked at the 'GCSE Reform Guide' and the 'KS4 qualifications and discount codes' document and it says that the legacy exam does not count on the 2019 league tables, but the new 9-1 spec was from first teaching 2017, first exam 2019, so they couldn't have sat the new spec 9-1 exam anyway.

    Does anyone know how this works for the P8/league tables? Will their grades not count for the school? Anyone got a link as everything I have read this morning does not sound positive!

    Many thanks.

    No it will not count sorry, the last A*-G that count this year is about 4 languages like Portuguese which will not have a 9-1 exam until next year

    It will not count for the school but it will for the students.

    Such is the daftness of legacy gcses..Did the exam board / your lm not make this clear to you?
