GCSE 2020 going to be easier or harder?Watch
They'll be exactly the same, grade boundaries may rise as a result of teachers getting to grips with the new system but otherwise question levels will be exactly the same. I hope all goes well! my advice would be to use your study leave adequately, and plan what revision you want to do in advance, make an exam time table asap and allocate your time efficiently!! everything will be okay
Most likely going to be 'harder' take this with a grain of salt. Our GCSE's were relatively easier due to higher percentage of Level 9's . However each exam board is different.
The standard cannot change as it is controlled by an external body - all boards have the same scrutiny. Don't worry about this or listen to any rubbish - btw I'm a teacher so know how this works.
Grade boundaries are set after the exam has been sat.
So if the paper is "harder" the grade boundaries are lower.. opposite for easier papers.
Just focus on doing as well as possible yourself and let the exam boards do as they have done for decades.
