    Only a handful of subjects haven't moved over to the new 9-1 grading, astronomy and statistics are the last two at our college.

    The UK exam boards are no longer offering A*-G in most subjects.

    At the moment, the new 9-1 GCSE system is still experimental, with last year being the first to do it. This was only core subjects (Maths, English and Science). This year, they have included a lot more subjects in the new system, but some (i can't recall which ones) are still the old GCSE system. By next year, every subject will be on the 9-1 system.
    This applies to every exam board and every school.
    Hope this helps.

    I'm fairly sure last year was only Maths and English but I could be wrong.

    There is also a chance that you may be right. Not sure about science last year, but it's definitely 9-1 this year
