Results from GCSE resits.

Results from GCSE resits.

Pupils collected their GCSE maths and English resit results from schools today 

Concerns have been raised after new data showed that pupils needed as little as 13 per cent of marks in a higher-tier maths GCSE paper to achieve a "standard pass" in their resits last term.

The grade boundaries for a "standard pass" – a grade 4 in the new higher tier maths GCSE paper – have all dropped from last summer for the three major exam boards. 

In Edexcel’s higher mathematics GCSE paper, a pass would have been achieved with 13 per cent of the overall marks in November – compared to 17 per cent in the summer. 

Meanwhile, pupils who took the higher maths GCSE paper for AQA needed 17 per cent of the marks to pass – compared to 19 per cent in the summer. 

And the grade boundaries for OCR also dropped slightly - from 15.3 per cent of marks needed for a grade 4 in the summer to 15 per cent in November.
