In summer 2017, almost all learners will receive A*-G qualifications, and will see no change in the way their GCSEs are graded.
There will be a few learners receiving 9-1 grades. These learners will have taken one of a small number of 9-1 graded GCSEs available.
In summer 2018, the majority of learners will receive A*-G qualifications, and will see no change in the way their GCSEs are graded.
More 9-1 graded subjects will be introduced and more learners will receive 9-1 grades.
In summer 2019, the grading will change for all CCEA GCSE qualifications. The vast majority of leaners will notice a change in the way that GCSEs are graded. The C* will appear in the grading for the first time and there will be a decrease in the number of learners achieving an A* overall.
Almost all other GCSEs will be graded 9-1. By summer 2020, the remaining 9-1 graded subjects will be introduced.
