I think they're all linear so you have no coursework and your grades will be 1 to 9 with 9 being like an A*

Actually, I think an 8 is equivalent to an A* and the 9 is a new 'super A*' type grade.

If you were born in the last thirty years you were born in the wrong time.

You're going to get graded 1-9 in English and Maths only, 1 being equivalent to an A* and 9 being equivalent to U. According to statistics only 30% of students in yr 11 in the UK will get grade 1. Are you in the 30%? Also in maths you have to memorise all the equations e.g the area of a triangle, the area of a trapezium etc. Normally all the equations are at the front of the paper but now they won't be unfortunately. They're making GCSEs harder than they were because they're not that hard, which I agree with because GCSEs are literally nothing! Just concentrate in class and go over things you don't understand and you'll be fine

I think you've been misinformed. 1 is the lowest grade and 9 is the top grade, Only about 20% of those who would currently get an A* will get a 9.

This is a short summary of the new changes.
-You will need to learn Maths Formulas of by heart.
-Controlled Assessments will be scraped for English.
-There is a 1-9 Grading System.
-You won't have the books infront of you in English exams.
That's all I heard from Teachers.
