All GCSE score limits, including those for Mathematics, are published separately by the appropriate exam boards and posted on their respective websites on the day of the results. GCSE grade limits are now only released to students on the day of the results, whereas they were previously released in advance. Employers, universities and colleges will continue to establish the GCSE qualifications they require to enter employment or continue their studies. There are three more grades that count in the English Baccalaureate (eBACC) and three that can be GCSE grades or any other non-GCSE grade from the list approved by the Department of Education.
Establish Grading Standards for New GCSEs The approach to awarding the best grades will be the same for all GCSE subjects.
