At Warwick Academy, we do not rank internally and do not calculate a GPA (We can calculate on request).

In both Sixth Form and Years 10 & 11, students are consistently assessed against the marking criteria for eventual examination of the course. Their grades are not scaled for their position in the course. Progression of grades from Year 10 through Year 11 is expected, as is progression of grades from Year 12 through Year 13.

Sixth Form students (Year 12 & 13) are assessed according to the IB criteria (Levels 1 to 7 / 1 the lowest and 7 the highest) & BTEC criteria (Pass, Merit, Distinction, Fail).


7 = A* 

6 = A   

5 = B    
4 = C
3 = D

2 = E

1 = F






In Year 10 & 11 we use the Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment I/GCSE examination boards.

Cambridge subjects use the current grading structure. Edexcel subjects use the new grading structure below.

For Cambridge at IGCSE - Grade ‘A*’ is awarded for the highest level of achievement and grade ‘G’ indicates the lowest level. ‘C’ is regarded as a 'good pass'. The ‘U’ indicates an unclassified result (or fail).

For Edexcel at IGCSE - A grade of ‘1’ is the lowest and ‘9’ the highest with a ‘4’ regarded as a 'pass'. The ‘U’ indicates an  unclassified result (or fail).

Current Grading Structure






New Grading Structure













100% passes across all subjects
