    All I know is that from all the GCSEs are changing and so is the grading system. I'm taking RE and Russian next year with the old grading system ,however, my other 11 GCSEs have changed. I'd suggest buying the new textbooks which state that they follow the new GCSE format.

    If you resit in 2017, you'll be doing the 9-1 spec for English and Maths. Everything else is the same. From 2018, the old spec will be obsoleted, and it'll all be 9-1.
