Results of the first resits of the new GCSE

According to new figures, tens of thousands of learners resitting the new 1-9 GCSE in English and maths failed to achieve a grade 4 pass.

The results were released by three of the major awarding organisations and, according to figures in the TES, “The proportion achieving a grade 4 or higher in English language was 33.5 per cent with AQA, 33.2 per cent with Edexcel and 49.9 per cent with OCR – although there were only 672 entries in the latter, which may have skewed the overall pass rate.”

“In maths, the proportion achieving a grade 4 or higher was 32 per cent with AQA, 30.4 per cent with Edexcel and just 26.6 per cent with OCR.”
