Top GCSE grade to be given to just 3% in English and maths
Just 3% of England's GCSE papers will be awarded the new ultra-high grade when new-style GCSE exams for English and maths are first sat in 2017.
The shake-up will see a shift to a numerical system from the highest Grade 9 to Grade 1, with the three top grades replacing the present A and A*.
