Our response to the Ofqual announcement on setting grade standards

After Ofqual’s announcement that GCSEs will be graded 1 to 9, Lesley Davies, vice president of quality, standards and research at Pearson, had this to say.

Today's announcement marks another step forward as the UK ensures its students match the best in the world.

Pearson has conducted research and taken advice from a panel of international experts as part of our drive to create new, world-class qualifications. They have been developed with industry and higher education to ensure that they provide the breadth needed for young people to progress in their chosen careers.

It is important that at this time of significant change we support teachers so they are well prepared to deliver the new content and ​have ​​the most up to date information on the ​reforms​. We have ​therefore ​developed resources to provide a high quality learning experience​ and support through these changes​.
