Details

In 2017, we have used the results from the GCSEs in English language and maths to establish the scores in the National Reference Test that equate to the GCSE grade boundaries. The test played no part in GCSE awarding in 2017. The purpose of the test in 2017 has therefore been to establish the baseline in standards in the National Reference Test against which changes in performance in future years can be measured.
