Maths and English GCSE are now graded 1-9. Grade 4 is considered to be a ‘standard pass’ and grade 5 a ‘strong pass’.

Although grade 5 in English and/or Maths is indicated as a specific entry requirement for most subjects, grade 4 can be accepted where the overall profile of the student suggests that the programme of study is appropriate.
