    Hey, so I found somewhere ( I can't remember what site) that to not resist GCSE maths you need a grade 4 or above. But my teacher said I need a 5 to pass? I'm currently in year 10, taking them in 2018.

    I'm in Northern Ireland and we still use the letter grading scale so I'm unfamiliar with the new numerical grading scale.

    You need a C to pass so whatever number is equivalent to a C.

    A 4 would have been a C in the old system and is still a level 2 qualification. If for example you need 5 A*-C grades to get into college, then it counts towards that. According to the current rules regarding how the government pays for your 16-19 education, a 4 is enough, but of course that could change in the future.
    A 5 is labelled as a "good" pass. Schools are likely to be judged on the number of "good" passes. You can expect a lot of encouragement to obtain a level 5 and of course the best possible grade you can get will be an advantage in the future.

    I am in Year 11 and I think boundaries have been moved to a 4 to pass, but that's just scraping - a 5 is preferred.
