Sstudents and staff at Dubai College are celebrating another set of exceptional GCSE results this year, taking the new 9-1 grading system in Mathematics in their stride. While most subjects continue to grade students from A*-E this year, Edexcel Mathematics is one of the first subjects to offer the UK government’s new 9-1 grading system in reformed GCSEs which are designed to be more challenging. Broadly speaking 7 is the equivalent to the old A grade while an 8 is an A* and a 9 is an A**. Direct comparisons are not entirely possible because the new grade 9 is actually higher than the old A* and 5s and 6s both straddle a B grade.
Students from GEMS Education schools have recorded another successful year of IGCSE results after a round of challenging examinations.
