GCSE Results 2017 24.08.17

GCSE students at Loughborough Grammar School have received a vintage set of GCSE results. It was a nervous moment for the 169 boys in Year 11 as they opened their envelopes, because this was the first year that numerical grades have been used – in English Language and English Literature.

In the subjects retaining alphabetical grades, 64% of papers were graded A*/A or equivalent, while 65% of the new numerical grades were between 6 & 9. A large number of boys received outstanding grades, with 16 boys achieving 9 A*s or better, and an extraordinary 55 achieving at least 5 A*s.

  • Over 10% achieved the new 9 grade (equivalent to A**) and 83% achieved grades 5-9
  • 16 boys achieved at least 9 A*s or equivalent
  • 55 boys achieved at least 5 A*s or equivalent
  • 90 boys achieved at least 6 A/A* grades
  • 86 boys achieved A* in IGCSE Mathematics and 71 in Physics
  • 47% of grades in Maths and Science were at A* (74% were at A*/A)
  • Over 50% of grades in Latin and Classical Greek were at A*
  • 16 of 19 Art students achieved A* or A
  • 2/3rds of grades in History were at A*/A
