    New GCSE exams in maths and English will be taken by students in England from summer 2017 so current year 10 students are preparing for them. Other subjects start the following year and the last few in 2019

    No you are just doing GCSE, they are not called O levels. Depending on your subject choices you may be doing a mixture of new gcse that are awarded grades from 9 to 1 and old ones that are awarded grades A* to G

    Yes lots of schools start teaching GCSE material in year 9. The start date on the web site assumes a two year course, yours will be a three year course with exams in 2018.
