Hello

There are exceptions to the trend but I will give you the general idea

Year 10 (aged 14/15) - start GCSE studies properly (sometimes you start at the end of year 9). In certain subjects you may take an exam at the end of this year e.g.sciences

Year 11 (aged 15/16) - Final year of GCSEs, complete exams

There are two types of exams - linear and modular. If it's a linear subject you take all your exams at the end of year 11. If it's modular you may take some in year 10.

however, if you were born in 1999 the system will be slightly different as it's all changing. The main difference is that you are unlikely to find modular exams plus the grading system is different.

What year you are in depends on when in 1999 you were born.

If you were born BEFORE September 1999 (e.g. January 1999)
academic year 2013/14 = Year 10
academic year 2014/15 = Year 11

If you were born AFTER/during September 1999 (e.g. November)
academic year 2013/14 = Year 9
academic year 2014/15 = Year 10

I think these dates are right!
I hope that's helpful
